Spring fever

It has been awhile since I have posted. I was in the middle of a large house remodeling project when my wife came out of remission for ovarian cancer and had to start doing treatments again. She is doing great and the treatments are working. But, my time has been limited to any sculpting. I am sorry for my absence.

We have been having a very warm winter here in north Alabama. It is making me have spring fever early. This past weekend I got the chance to take a break from the house and got to play in the yard a little, which is my passion. I have been sculpting on my back yard for a little over 17 years. If you see a rock in the pic's I have moved it least three times. Even though I designed lawn mowers for over 12 years, I still do not like to cut grass. I have eliminated it in my back yard. There are nothing but flower beds and moss covered walk ways. It is still a work in progress, but I thought I would show you some pic's of what I did this past weekend and some from last summer.

The first is the lower path near the house that is covered in mulch, I was able to remove that and in the second pic it shows it with moss plugged in.

This shows an upper level landing where I plugged some moss.

The rest of these photo's were from last summer.

Darel, It is GORGEOUS. I am soooo jealous. I can just imagine sitting out there......how relaxing that must be.

Was good to see you yesterday. Wish we were closer so we could actually 'visit'.

Candy, it was nice to see you guys. I am glad we were able to bump into each other.

It is very relaxing in the back yard. That's where I go and hide and think and have my coffee.

Nancy,thank you very much. It is hard to go to work in the mornings if I step out there with a cup of coffee.

Thanks for stopping by the blog.
