Garden Border Progress

It's a two post day!  Busy busy!

I was finally able to do a bit more work on the brick border. I only had 10 bricks left so it didn't take very long.  After cleaning up I went back out to take a few pics and noticed it rises a bit high where the curve started.  Oops!  It gives it character I guess!


Here's a view from the deck:


While digging, I had a close encounter with an adorable bee!  I was so enchanted by the little guy I didn't think to reach over for my phone to take a picture.  Drats! It buzzed around my head a few times then landed in one of the depressions I had made with a brick.  It sat there and seemed to just want to take a rest. 

Then this Ibis showed up:


We have a flock of Ibis that poke around the yards in the neighborhood.  This one was on his own.  He stayed for a good 10 minutes.  

And then I heard the twitter of a Downy Woodpecker.  It was a pair - with one of them landing fairly close to me.  It's not a great shot, but you get the gist.  I think this was the female.  It was adorable!  


It was a good day - got some things accomplished!  And, I don't think I hurt myself!

  1. Take it from me, once the border is settled and the grass comes back up, you'll never notice the small rise in it.

  2. LOL! That's the conclusion I came to as well! Considering the state the "grass" is in, the border looks Fantastic!!!!
