My hands are so blistered and sore I can barely type. This evening I started a project and was determined to finish it before I came in, (I finished a little after 10:00 p.m.). We have an outdoor lamppost that really needs to be replaced, but instead, I decided to cover it up. I did a raised bed, using castle blocks, around the lamppost and removed all of the grass. To mark my area and get it even, I took a bungee cord and hooked it around the light post at one end and hooked the other end to my edger. It was pretty easy to keep the shape I wanted, (semi-circle), with this easy method. I had bought two Maiden grasses and planted them on either side of the lamppost. I'll have to decide what else to plant, I know for certain I want a clematis to grow in between the grasses and up the lamppost. It will also be a perfect spot for tulip bulbs and maybe some asters or mums too.
I'm so excited, a neighbor/friend has invited me to go on a little trip with her for a couple of days. We will be going to north Indiana's Amish country. I love it up there! She has never been, so it'll be fun taking her to my favorite stores and then on Tuesday we'll go to the huge flea market. I'm on the lookout for a rustic looking birdhouse, I should be able to find it there.
I'll be back on Wednesday!
