Progress .....

 As you can see, the bench is in place and more mulch ...... a lot more mulch.

 I should be finished by the end of next week. All the rocks and mulch should be in place.

 I have a couple more stepping stones to put in place to lead you to the bench.

 I could smell rain in the air, so I planted some tiger lilies. Iris will flank either side. I really wanted to get those in, but I was so tired. I could not muster up any more energy.

 My goal this week was to make it to the peach tree and around. I did that and then some.

 The end is in sight!

 This is one long garden!

I like the bench. I sat on it today to catch my breath while I was digging up some lilies to transplant. The breeze was cool with a hint of rain and I could hear the leaves rustling on the trees. I put some solar lights in strategic spots and will go out when it is dark to see where I will need more. It was very peaceful, there on the bench, in the garden of Paul.

Today we heard more sad news. Another friend and camper passed away last night. His wife was kind enough to take the time to call and let us know. She was shaken, but surrounded by family and friends. It was not expected and I am sure she will need their support in the coming days, as the shock fades away. I asked if I could do anything, all the while knowing that there is nothing that can be done to ease her pain. Just sad, so very, very sad.

I am sorry Kathy. It is never easy. I know.

Your gardens are such a delight to behold. You have talent my friend.

Hugs [and go snuggle a dachshund or two or three. It makes it a wee bit better, doesn't it?]

Take care.
