A Jungle...

This is our jungle:
I fully believe there are tigers, monkeys, and elephants out there. Or, at least, killer grass seeds and garter snakes.

Under all of that vegetation lies a couple tons of rock. Rock carefully stacked, ready for used. Rock directly in the way of a good mowing. Rock that now must be moved AGAIN, 40 lb stone by 40 lb stone, for the FOURTH time. I'm feeling a little like Sisyphus.

THIS time, though, we aren't moving it to build a fence, or to cut tree branches. THIS time we have a plan. We are moving all of the rocks into the partially constructed flowerbed on the west side, to await further instructions. It's hot, it's heavy... but someone has to do it!

Wow, that is some serious vegetation. Nice reference to Sisyphus.

I hope you have a sturdy wheelbarrow ... AND mower!

Bryan~ It really is... three truckloads to the recycling center so far!

Rob~ :)

NV~ Got both... and it's a SUPER good mower, too. Haven't used it in a few years since I got the reel mower for the front yard... but it sure chomps down weeds!
