Default Out working on my garden today

Slow day, nice weather, no cars to work on, all my leather projects are done, I'm board.

Decided to work on the garden a bit. Planted some mint last year, 2 small plants. You know, for Mojitos. They seem to grow a little faster then I thought.

Already starting to plan on it'* removal, with a mojito party.

Picked up 250 pounds of stepper stones yesterday. Made a small waterfall with this big one.

Then I picked up a box filter for this fountain. Should have got that a long time ago.

Trimmed back the mint some. Now I can see the pond again.


My little corner of quite. Found some solar lights on Menards for $5 a pair. I picked up 6 lights. Might pick up 6 more.

Nice blue glow at night. I'll have to see if I can get some pictures of that.

Great job Dan! I like how it'* grown in and the freeloaders that moved in should help with any bugs in the garden.

Looking good Dan. I planted some mint in my Mom'* yard years ago. At least yours is confined to a small area. I spent years trying to keep that stuff at bay. Smelled really nice as I tried to snuff it out.
