Getting Ready for Gardening


Originally uploaded by mmahaffie.

Christina and I dropped some cash at Lowes Garden Center this morning. We got some soil to add to the flower beds, grass seed, annuals, perennials, and hanging baskets.

The big project this spring is a new flower bed built in the spot where a tree used to be. The tree came down in a wind storm and, despite having a crew come in and grind out the stump, we were left with a mass of thick roots. Rather than conduct a major excavation, we used left-over field stone to build a low wall, back-filled with new soil, and planted a mess of day-lilys.

There is a path, in life, and it is the path of least resistance.
