I hesitate to show this picture because there is still so much to do.
BUT, look what we have accomplished!
We have a back yard.
The final island bed, complete with surrounding rock wall and subsoil filler, is complete.
The yard is raked, the rocks are picked out, and the grass seed is spread.
If we can keep the children out, we should have our first hints of grass within a week.
My, oh my, that is a lot of work!
However, if we're especially lucky, by the middle of summer
we'll have a badminton net set up with jolly little players wacking a birdie around!
Work is a blessing.
