I think Brian has found his Calling - Future Landscape Artist!!!

Last weekend my grandson, Brian, worked very hard on my flower bed in front of the house!!! He did a wonderful job.
I wished I had taken a before picture - the area was all grown up with daylilies so thick that he had to take a shovel and maddock to get them out. I think he loaded a wheelbarrow at least 12 to 15 times and had to move it to the woods down the hill in the back yard. He started about 10 a.m. and finished with the digging and raking about 3 p.m.
Then that afternoon, my husband got a load of black mulch. It took close to 2 hours for Brian, Britney & myself to unload and place it around the bushes.
It was Brian's decision on where to put the stones for a walkway & to place the bistro table & chairs. Plus he
placed the other concrete things, like the small birdbath, angel, concrete flower pedistals and more. He did a great landscaping job!!!!!
He has two more projects planned for me - next he plans to work
on the area below the steps and then I showed him a place in the woods that would be a beautiful shade-garden room. Great place for him to practice his guitar! I will do before pictures this time.
I hear he is now working on a landscaping plan for his mom! Can't wait to see it.
