AfterThe past two years we had to deal with hurricanes in the fall, so all we could do in the garden was clean up duty. This year I had no excuse, I took a week vacation from my job and jump into the project. At age 53 it takes me a long time to finish a project like this. After many breaks, dozens of beers, several trips to Home Depot and 52 bags of rocks the project is done. The project came in over budget, but what the heck if the government can not do any job on budget I don’t feel that bad.
So far the reviews from family and neighbors has been good. Today was a perfect day the weather was in the mid 70s and not a cloud in the skies, a perfect day to sit in my patio reading a book and listening to the water running in my new fountain. The tranquility did not last long my neighbor decided to have a party and the sound of loud salsa music penetrated the garden and the moment was gone.
