Last Saturday I trained my sons in the art of home gardening. Or, I worked them hard because they are cheap labor - however you want to look at it. :D You can see "before" sketches here.
Above is my journal page of the finished project - at least, finished for now. The debate about the final two hedges has yet to be resolved.

|Told my sons they needed to use their art skills to help me determine the best way to lay out the rocks.|
|I'm very proud of how hard my sons worked on this - hauling all those edging rocks from the backyard.|
Just as an aside, my oldest son, on the way out to the bus stop this morning said, "Wow, Mom. I just love looking at that rock garden, it makes me so happy."
