Buried drainage tube. Water coming off the north corner of the apartment will be carried out towards the raised stone bed that will become a greenhouse soon. The yard there turned out to be mostly gravel.
Neatened up around that raised bed. Stacked bags of garden soil and threw a bunch of soil from below the bed up into the raised square that Sherry had built. Rolled two big fallen rocks back up towards the remaining wall.
Walked Teddy thru the woods out to the bridge. He behaved fairly well. Remarkably well, for him.
Dug out a portion of a hydrangea to plant on the north side of Diagon Alley. The Alley needs mowing. Tore up a few honeysuckle shoots. That hydrangea was tough! I fought to cut each root, falling down into the dry old branches. I hope it will like its new home.
Resisted the urge to get out the mower – my job is landscape and garden, not mow. It is my goal to make the mowing easier, trimming overhanging branches and making garden beds simpler to mow around.
Emptied one of the pallets of garden wall blocks, got the western side placed. Just placed. Not set it. I am laying them on top of the ground. Good golly I am doing enough already.
Moved two small sections of the giant grass rhizomes. They were even tougher to dig out than the hydrangea! My feet hurt from stomping on the top of the shovel. We need them to grow under the wires to block the view from the road.
Moved the stones from around the giant grass to complete the other side of that bed. Decorated that bed with a clay frog and a stone stack.
Stretched out the plastic sheets, eventually folded them to put away. Walked Teddy again.
Moved some containers around trying to decorate, gave up. Pondered the future rose garden.
Am exhausted and need to run Full Moon circle tonight!
