Back to Work!



We are home from Quebec and back to work on the yard & garden (and yes...our "real" jobs as well). The Amherst Garden Tour is in 2 weeks. Yikes!! I finished staining all 175 (+/-) pickets today. What a tedious job. Tomorrow I hope we will get most of the fence up. Stay tuned for more pictures of the fence in the days to come. With all the hot weather the plants are weeks ahead of schedule. I hope there is still something blooming the day of the tour.

Wow oh wow! You have made some amazing changes there in the past few months. No wonder you've been so busy.

I just love the new fence! It's beautiful and best of all it's yours. Yes it's an incredible amount of work but I'm green with envy over it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and letting me know about this. I'll be back again soon :-)

Those are really cool looking pickets. You've gotten a lot done on it so far & its going to look great. We still haven't started our fence, so I will be mulling around ideas a bit more.

Hard to believe June is almost over and your tour is only a couple days away. I'm not sure I can make it now. After 3 weeks of labor in the Long Island heat I'm a bit burned out and ready to go fishing the rest of this week.

I'm wondering what kind of excuse to make to get away. I'm usually pretty good at making stuff up so there's hope I may show up after all. I didn't want to miss the tour but with the price of gas and limited time it's going to be tough. A 6 hour drive is getting unreasonable these days. Maybe I should plan on going for Ice Cream. Ben and Jerrys is on the way if I head south through Vermont :) And of course the Cold River is waiting for me to pilfer some stone too.
