Outside of Reading

There are a lot of reasons for my lack of reading lately. Current events aside, one of the more time consuming reasons has been landscaping projects. These are projects I've been putting off for nearly five years now. I finally have time to do the work and my children are big enough that I can really dig in (pun intended) to something without worrying what kind of shenanigans they are causing. They are also big enough to be put to work. 


Just a few of the things I've done so far. 

At some point, I'd really love to rip all of this up and make a small deck or gazebo in this corner. For the time being, flowers are what I can afford. 


I'm not quite finished with this project yet. I'm working on a piece of garden art that is going to go in the center of the hostas.
