These wild ideas of mine just bubble around in the back of my brain until the right moment.........and then.......VIOLA! Out of the the blue, the Big Guy just makes them happen. You didn't think I would do this by myself, did you?! I'm not strong enough to lug Boxwoods around like HE can. And he looks way better doing this kind of hard, physical labor than anyone I know. I mean, look at those GUNS! I enjoyed watching him flex and bend. That sweaty brow of his is just.......HOT!
It wasn't long though, before he had to call in the cavalry, though. He's not as young as he used to be. The Big Guy felt that the young fella's are far better suited to digging than he is. So, Junior and Son-in-law got roped into helping out. My little Angel loves watching her fella flex and bend too! So, we sat together on the porch drinking lemonade and enjoying the show. Watching men at work.......IT'S A BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
In the end, it proved even too much for the cavalry and we had to recruit a few members of the greenhouse staff to finish off the job. Good thing we have a large pool of recruits to pull from!
All the hard work really paid off and I now have my formal garden out front. I just love it when a plan comes together, don't you?
