How neglectful can I possibly be in recording what I have accomplished in the 1080 Laughing Labyrinth? Let me count the ways…. Instead, let me catch up!
June has been nothing but rain and although the temperatures have rarely risen to the predicted highs, the humidity has made things pretty uncomfortable. So, I am usually out early digging, tearing up the ground to get stepables in, and deciding where to put the limestone bench. The biggest hurdle was moving “Big Honkin'” the boulder that Mike dropped in February. We had neighbor families over in early June. The children’s version of a contemplative walk
was running the pathways at full speed, nary missing a turn. Later, four strong guys gave one shove and said, “Boy, that’s heavy.” Duh! So, Tina P. and I used our brains over brawn. We borrowed a plastic sled from Tracy, levered Big Honkin’ onto the shed, but lacking mass, had to stop there. So, that afternoon, the the sweltering heat, Rich tied a rope around the rock and truck bumper and snap! The resistance broke the rope. So, we tied two ropes and presto, Big Honkin had a new
home across the entry way next to the daisy fleabane. Yeah! So, welcome rock returned to the center of the entry, I dug and set the stepping stones, put in more stepables and did work in the labyrinth itself.
How nice are my friends to not only dig plants before a major surgery and another to dig plants and put them in while I supervised moving furniture and a carpet in preparation for the wood stove installation? Pretty lucky gal.
