My Summer Job

This is our huge yard that I take care of. I do all the mowing, edging, weeding, put out all mulch and pine needles, plant flowers, aereate, and husband helps put our the fertilizer. We have a natural spring fed pond with small gold fish. We have a great blue heron that visits frequently and a couple of mallard ducks. Husband hand laid each rock on the rock wall at the edge of the pond and along the added driveway to his new garage for his car restoring hobby.

"Your home and gardens are beautiful and obviously well-tended. I know from personal experience how much work keeping up a yard and garden can be -- so I'm glad to see you have a hammock so you can take a break and enjoy the fruits of your labor."
