Sore Sunday

When I said Mom was going to move rocks, I wasn't joking. Mom wants to put a "shade garden" along this wall of the house (that's her bedroom window.)

She thought there was nice dirt there, but she was wrong. She had to remove that plastic stuff under the old mulch, and the two big bins sitting on that pallet. The she had to move three big bunches of day-lilies that were growing there.

Mom can't plant her garden right up against the house, so she moved rocks. A landscaping company will be taking away the old mulch, tilling the ground underneath, and putting in several "yards" of good dirt.

THEN Mom can plant the special plants she bought for this space.

So, MOM is the one who is sore. Not me.

It's yet another case of 'aren't you glad you're a cat', Millie! I bet your mom was very sore after doing all that hard work. I hope you sat at the window and snoopervised closely.

Lots of work, but worth it in the end, Millie.

We think the garden will look good after all that work.
Maybe your Mom can rest a bit with you :)

We bet it will be lovely when it is done! Make sure to pick plants the deer and bunnies don't want to eat!!

Yup, lots of work to just get things in shape to put in new plants. Hope your mum can rest up and let the big guys do the hard work.

Ooh ooh, we know about tilling in good dirt! TBT has done that in places. Stuff grows better after that. She will LIKE it!
