|Fence among the buttercups|
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
60 degrees when I walked this morning and it was cloudy. Walked down the main road toward HT but only went about a third of the way before turning around and heading back to town. Ken passed me in the truck going to HT to pick up some things we needed for a project we worked on today - a little more about the project later.
Once I got back to town I walked up and down most of the streets in town. Over by the post office I came across an artist starting to paint a picture. Of course I stopped to talk to her for a while. Her name is Kathie and she is from Tennessee. She gave me her card and I went to her website and wow she has painted some fantastic pictures. You can read about her HERE.
I walked 6.2 miles.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡Right after breakfast we left to get started on our project for the day. We didn't waste any time getting to work on the Garden Project by the radio station building at church. The before pictures are on yesterdays post.
We first cut down to a stub a huge type of yew shrub and got all the weeds out. Here I am in the process of weeding.
Weeds are gone here and some plants set out waiting to be planted.
Also stopped at the house to pick up a bird bath and dig up two rose bushes and two ornamental grasses to transplant in the church garden. Then back to church to work on the garden again. We worked a couple more hours on it. After we got done planting, a thunder storm came along to water it all for us. Here I am looking over our handiwork.
This is the almost finished project.
The only thing left to do is give the fence a fresh coat of paint and put down wood chips which we are going to make with our chipper up at HT. When that is done and the plants grow I'll take another picture for the Final After picture. We were really surprised that we got all this done in one day. We are tired but feel good.
Hope your day was a happy one.

you should smell like dirt.
