This was easy for you; but I'm afraid it would take me a lot longer to do this little bed.
Great instructions; love the square cutting of the grass, you're right much easier to carry.
Great information. Have a nice day; garden day.

Tootsie, I have been away for several weeks but have enjoyed catching up with your blog. It really has been a blessing in these last few weeks. My #1 cat Smokey who I was blessed to have for nine years became ill, after many weeks of not being able to keep his coat clean, drooling and not being able to eat except on the side of his mouth which was not very pretty, the vet did a biopsy on his mouth, tongue and throat and found that he had throat cancer. The only thing that could have been done was to remove his tongue, give radiation and chemo treatments and tube feeding the rest of his life. So I had to make one of the hardest decisions I have ever made in my life and have him put down. I know it was the right thing to do, thats what I keep telling my self. Everyone else said I made the right decision. I know that I don't want to be kept alive by tubefeedings and I know Smokey would not have wanted that either. So your blog has given me a break from thinking about him and helped me to concentrate on outside and Spring. I am already planning to make him a memorial garden in my yard. He loved being outside, playing with bugs, butterflys and any creature he could find in the yard. He especially like rolling around in the grass. You have given me some very good ideas and plan to use some of them when I start my flower gardens. So thanks again for all the great tips and especially for listening. Sometimes it helps to be able to talk to someone even if it is in a blog.

Was reading your post about the garbage bag. Great idea. I just love the look of the mossy thing or what ever it is called but it is VERY expensive to replace. Cost around $50 or more last year and I had to cut the stuff to fit. The water just goes right threw it too. I was going to use reg. pots inside of the mossy stuff but maybe I will use a grocery bag for the hanging ones. Great ideas and you have BEAUTIFUL flowers. I just love getting out in the yard and planting. Can run into some $$ cause I do a lot. Have a great day.
