When I came to live here I didn't know that Daddy was crazypants.
But he IS!
He's spent the past week outside, heaving rocks, tossing boulders and dragging dirt all over the yard. He gets hot and sweaty and it looks like a lot of work, to me. And work is Bad, in my opinion.
I've had to watch him every minute, except for naps, that is.
This is the corner Daddy has been working in, as seen from the
Lime Lemon Tree.
He's done several things with this corner and they just haven't been right.
Finally he decided what to do!
First, he laid patio blocks along the wall.
Then, he shoveled the pond rock onto the patio...
...and built a walled raised garden.
Then he had to put everything back; the stepping stones, the pond rock, and because he's a
glutton for punishment perfectionist he redefined the lantana garden, too, which is when the boulder tossing happened.
Here it is, almost done.
The plants on either side of the (desert willow/catalpa hybrid) tree are bottle brush plants.
Daddy decorated with some fun things!
And Mommy tried it out.
It's a hit! This corner of the yard gets the least sun in the summer, so it will be a lovely cool spot to sit in the shade of the tree and smell the
limes lemons ripening.
Mommy plans to enjoy many G & T's here after work...
Oh, and listen to us whine from the Catio!
