Here is the finished daylilly bed that I worked my butt off on! Doesn't look like much now, but come spring, it will take off. There are 10 40# bags of topsoil and 2 40# bags of composted cow manure. That's 480 lbs of dirt and you know what (cow poop) that I schlepped from Home Depot to the truck, off the truck and spread around the bed. You do the math! Did I get any weight bearing exercise today? Well, you bet your britches I did! My doctor will be so proud.
After all this hard, sweaty work, I decided I needed some real fun and armed with my trusty pot paints and brushes, like Gepetto, I created an alter ego! Please meet my whimsical gardening gnome friend, "Stumpy"!
