Moving Heaven and Earth Continues

As soon as I was back from IA with the girls, I went right back to work on the landscaping.  That night I leveled the dirt (as best one can when they are an amateur with just a shovel).  With the ground levelled and graded and the rock torn out, I widened the bed, got the edging laid and the plastic put down the day after I got back.

Then Weds I finished the mulching, installed the fountain (good lord that thing was heavy), and put in a few plants.  There is still more work to do, things to tweak, and plants to install, but today, Thursday, is party prep day.  I've neglected the girls for the past wk trying to landscape the yard.  Thankfully the neighbors took the girls many hours while I worked.  This has been the most fun I've had in a long time.  Here's the progress up to today.
