Memorial Day....

Hello Friends, on this special day we thank our military men and women, past and present, for their service to our great country. Thank you for your sacrifice, for your selflessnes and the security that you afford us here at home. We love you!!
Now to the pictures....I cannot for the life of me remember to take "before" pictures of things! We just dive on in, and wish we had the before pics after we're done..Anyway, this basement door and the planters on either side were dirt and boulders. (see boulders in planter on right). The boulders had shifted and moved toward the door making it rather narrow. The planter on the right was filled to overflowing with ivy and creeping junipers. I'm not fond of either of the two plants as we are both allergic to the juniper, and the ivy is a great hiding spot for skunks and mice and spiders! Last week I spent a couple of hours each day cleaning out the ivy and hubby dug out the junipers on his last day off. This weekend we put up the walls. We still need a load of river rock for the planters, and that brick walkway will be changed as well, but we got a good start on things anyway. On Sunday, we watched movies, made fajitas for dinner, and relaxed. Wishing you a peaceful holiday weekend. Blessings~
