“Oh wall, oh sweet and lovely wall…”

I saw A Midsummer Night’s Dream performed in the natural theater in Greenwood Park last week. It was wonderful! But my favorite performace of Pyramus and Thisby will always be The Beatles performing it.

Meanwhile, I’ve begun building a wall myself! I’m afraid I’ll be pretty embarassed when my uncle, the landscape architect comes over to take a look at it, but it’s my first try so there’s lots of room for improvement. I don’t really know what I’m doing.

    Looks good to me! I think you’re doing everything right – dug out a bit below surface level, getting it level, and stacking neatly – all the qualities of a good garden wall.

    Well thanks, folks! I do feel better having asked a coworker who worked landscaping this past summer. He also said I was doing it right, so I guess I’ll just keep on keepin’ on. 🙂

    ALL of these jobs like this seem so little but they make a house a home. You are doing a great job.
