I'm so excited! I have two new big beds.

Of course, they're not made yet. But at least the basic part is there.

I'm talking flower beds, that is. We've been wanting to get these made for a long time, but thanks to the generosity of some good friends, we were able to pick up the beautiful stone that makes the foundation for the beds.

Now to get the compost. Then on to choosing the lovely flowers that will grace the beds. And the ornaments.

One of them is beneath my Redbud tree and the other is right below my garden pond and circles the big oak that stands beside our lower driveway. This last one I made a little bigger because it already has a huge rock there that hubby found somewhere. It also contains some moss that I plan on leaving there. And an odd shaped smaller rock that looks a little like a sentinel.

So all in all, yesterday was a good day.

Two beds in one day. Now that's accomplishment.

The work praises the man. --Irish proverb
