Preparing Judah and Simeon for Planting

After a week of warm, sunny weather, we were greeted on Sunday morning with a reminder of how changeable Texas weather can be.  Overnight, the temperature dropped from the eighties to the forties and the clouds moved in for an extended–and welcome–stay.  Although we didn’t receive a drought-breaking rainfall, any moisture is welcome.  Yesterday, I ventured out in the cool, misty weather to see what was happening in the garden.  You see, there is only so much my little army of gardeners can accomplish, so we called in the professionals to remove unwanted sod, lay some new pathways, and prepare planting beds.  By the middle of next week, we will be able to start planting the butterfly garden in Simeon.  For now, then,  here is what I saw:

    Pam, It’s so exciting to be visually included in this progress. So amazed by the speed. Can’t wait to view the actual design of the actual plantings for the Butterfly Garden. The imprint of THE MASTER GARDNER is all over this! Thank you for blessing us again. Dottie

    I was wondering what the weather was like there.Everyone seems to be working so hard maybe you will have a little rest until the weather allows you to start again. I am anxious to see first hand how things are . I will be there for Passover . God bless all of you for such good and loyal work.
