I am still trying to identify this one, but it is spectacular! (I have since learned from Mamabug that this is Bee Balm, love the name! Thanks Mamabug!)
Many of you are aware of the challenges we have faced in removing a giant double hemlock stump in preparation to build our much desired deck (you can click on the link to see the previous posts). Well, we were finally able to finish the job! I'll give you the final steps in brief...
Robert came back with his backhoe to try once again to finish the clearing and grading the ground...
...but woo hoo and happy day, the project was finally completed!
The four sticks you see are the markers for the end of the deck, @ 14 and 16 feet...I have always been advocating for 16 feet, and do believe my logic has satisfied the naysayers. The next project, which you will absolutely, without a doubt, read all about, is the marking out of the path/drive for the 4-wheel drive ATV we have yet to acquire (this is intended to be a double duty pleasure ship and work horse), the laying of grass seed on the ground surrounding the path/drive to prevent runoff, laying of straw to hold both the grass seed and the dirt where there will be no grass seed but eventually gravel (both under the deck and the path/drive, and ultimate building of the deck. Much to do but, once again, give me a WOO HOO, we are on our way! Nothing like the success of finishing a step in a project!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
