Thanks for posting these project updates - we have had steady hard rain since yesterday evening (after 3 weeks of no rain at all) and its making me think of all kinds of garden simplifications since I can't get out into it. Good to be reminded that even simplifications aren't simple to achieve!

CECI — You are so right. When you look at the way it was and the way it is now, it looks like a quick, easy redo. Compared to the pond redo, it was easy. But it really got done now because the electric wheelbarrow Mark ordered got damaged in shipment and sent back. Waiting for a new one and he can't do any of the heavy lifting he needs to do to get going on the big project.

One thing leads to 10 more - right? Great job on transforming, once again, this "little" area.

Somehow, almost every project seems to go that way, like an endless ripple in water when a stone is dropped. I'm sorry that heat is still an encumbrance. We're starting a long warming trend, just as the dozen plants I ordered 10 days ago arrived...

KRIS P. — It's a bit cloudy outside and I can hear thunder, but the storm on radar just looks like little blobs with lots of openings in between them. All the nurseries online are having sales and I am really conflicted about buying. If there appeared to be some real rain in the future it would make it easier to decide. Nothing more frustrating than getting a shipment of plants just as it heats up.


Oh wow! What a lot of work. It looks fabulous though!

I love the process shots, so nice to be there with you. Can't wait to see what you plant.


This is a little intimidating. Every step of the process looks perfect and I can't help but think of what a mess my garden is every time I try a project!
I love how you keep reinventing your garden.

This is getting exciting! A new planting area. Whooo Hooo....
Stones are a bear to pull once they have been in the soil for so long. They sink in and make themselves at home. I am so happy you got rid of the burning bush too. Not a good plant to have since they are invasive. At least in our area they are. They pop up everywhere you don't want them.
