Progress

The front of the garage just lacks a few rocks to be complete. It looks really good. Greg did a little fancy finishing work around the window. The "Rose of Sharon" (althea) by the garage door had to go. It was very pretty with its purple flowers but it had grown as tall as the roof, and besides, I am so proud of the pretty rock work that I don't want anything covering it up!!! At some point, I may plant some little dwarf shrubs of some sort along the front but for now, I am just going to enjoy the look.
When I got home on Friday, this is what greeted me at the end of the garage. It looked a bit like a cross between a circus tent and something in a bad trailer park.
But the next day when we worked in the shade of the tent, I didn't really care WHAT it looked like. I think it was about 103........again.
Greg had the rocks all on the ground like a jigsaw puzzle, ready to go on Saturday morning at 7. He says it goes a lot faster that way when he doesn't have to look for the pieces as he goes. It took both of us to set this big bubba in place. It was HEAVY!!
The rock pile has diminished but still a lot left.
What drew me outside this evening was the fact that the sun wasn't glaring outside. When I went out, this is what I saw.......CLOUDS!!!
It has been a long, long time since we have seen clouds. Maybe, just maybe, they will come with a chance of rain.
