Winter is approaching!

When my mom was here she bought me some bulbs to plant before it gets cold. Well I went to plant them in the front flowerbed while she was here and found multiple layers of the plastic weed barrier and many inches of rocks. SO that of course brought about a project; which needs to be complete before it freezes here (the other morning it was in the high 30's). We ordered a sieve online and it came in over the weekend so Sunday and Monday (just me), and tonight (we) worked on getting the rocks out. We are putting aside the blue/grey slate rocks to use again, but getting rid of all the other rocks and adding it to our concrete pile for now (which will get hauled away eventually). Anyway we reached the halfway mark today!! Not sure if you can tell from the pictures. The little bush in the middle, it's roots were all intertwined in rocks, so hopefully it will do better now that I gave it some dirt to nest in.

I also picked up a little ornament for our yard! :0) Gotta love 50% off sales!

Thanks for the update. I thought you must have gone on vacation or something. Sorry to hear about your rocks, but it sounds like you're on top of it, as usual. Keep up the good spirits. Life is full of rocky flower beds, but Jesus keeps us growing. Love Ya's, Daddy P.
