We did work--boy did we! But it was good work, a project I've wanted to do for a long time. And I love to watch him build things, even if he's building them 'on the fly' as he did this table. I used to want a green house, but had since decided it would take up too much of the yard, blocking views of the flowers. So the compromise will be a future green house "lean to" on the end of our shed--just enough to winter over the humongous house plants and some of the more tender perennials I keep on the porch.

|Pretty cool when there's room on the outer section of the deck for building projects!|
|Drill, baby, drill!|
|The cabinets are there on the right side...|
|Ta-daaaaa! Freshly painted, the same color exterior paint as the shed.|
|Schultz, in a supervisory capacity.|
|The baby sparrows are being raised about two feet from the patio door. Almost ready to fledge!|
Please note that most of the grass on the side and front yard is dead--I killed it! There will be a rocked desert garden across the front corner, and mulched paths on the rest of it. No more lawn in the front yard by this time next year. None. Nadda. Zip.
|My privacy fence is now more perennials than annuals...yay!|
|The Stop Sign corner|
|The grass is dead on purpose! That section is destined for a rocked desert garden...I promise.|
|Yes, that sunflower really is over nine feet tall!|
|I planted these rudbeckias from seed...love the dark centers.|
