Sunday's Handywork.......





For the past 3 weeks, my wife and Reese, and myself, have been preparing my home for my son's graduation Open House on June 22nd. Yesterday Our good friend Lynn came over to help also. I took my truck and had 2 yards of red mulch loaded up..76 bucks for two whole yards!!
Much cheaper than 3 bags for 10 in front of the gas station eh?
Anyway, it was 90 yesterday, with a humidity of 98%. We had very bad weather after we got finished, with rain and wind gusts up to 70 mph..These pics were taken this morning, it held up pretty good don't you think? When you have this much mulch, you can layer it on quite thick!!
.
Peace..!!!

it looks good and i am glad the storm didn't ruin all your hard work, especially when you did it in that kind of heat....ugh.

Glad to see you weathered things OK. I was out of town and when I got home late Sunday night I discovered I was without power and might be until Wednesday.

This morning I discovered that a fairly good sized evergreen went down next door to me on the city/utility property. I also lost a deck planter. That seems to be my only problem. Considering we had 3 very bad weather days in a row I think I did pretty darn good.

Congrats on your sons graduation. He is making his Dad mighty proud.

It's raining here, some areas flooding, but I like the rain :)
Your yard looks nice and I bet Reese can't wait for his graduation open house thingy.

All that hard work was worth it, because the place looks great! That's going to be a party to remember. I'm glad the wind and rain didn't mess it up.:)

I remember spending weeks and $$$ getting house ready for open houses! If I had it over again to do, I'd rent a hall....
