The Park

I built the walkway last year. Lined with weed cloth,
5 tons of gravel and a bunch of stones to border.
Kept me busy for a bit...

Louise in the center is looking out for the park.
Started the side walkways, have the Mariposite outcrop and planted 72 baby Salvias.

Lulu, named after Bea's two most loved women:
Louise Brooks and Louis Veronica Chiccone.

The rose garden, loved by rabbits and squirrels.
I only sit for the picture.

Mark takes 2 seconds to sit

I have the arbor assembled ready for this entrance way

Rain is the perfect time to dig up the lavender bed

Park building is a lot of work and it spends a lot of money. Builds muscles and makes the body ache.
My Landscape Architect lady, Anne Attinger is a genius and her plan is perfect for my taste :) and perfect for our ranch.
