Getting Ready for the Wedding

 The clock is ticking as we wind down to the wedding.  So little time and still so much to do. I try to check as much off my list each day as possible.  I had some much needed work done in my gardens last week.  The first thing that was tackled was resetting these stone steps.  They were terribly crooked from settling and they had to rip them all out and reinstall them. They also built a new railing out of downed timbers.  Teddy and I are very happy to have level steps once more. They did a wonderful job, you can hardly tell that anything was touched.

 They rearranged some pond stones as well.

 I had the old grass/weeds pulled out and had them lay sod.  After 16 years the city grass was all weeds.

 I'll get a better pic of this later but they rebuilt my gazebo too.  Most of my garden structures had been built from black locust timbers and though they are very sturdy, after 16 years, mother earth was reclaiming them.

 I had sod put down around my gurgling millstone too.  What a difference.  This area was entirely covered in dandelions before.

It was perfectly timed because we have had rain almost every day since they finished it. The yard is looking lush right now.  Bring on the guests!
