Rearrange! the garden...

These lillies were in the front of the flower bed. Can you see that there are a LOT of them?
They are going to be on the side of this shed. I also have two lantana for each side of the front of the shed. The door is definitely needing a coat of purple paint.

The pile of roots is a lantana plant that grows to enormous size each year.

They are still in the flower bed soon to be veggie garden, and they are fixin to be rearranged!
Yep, them day lillies are taking up too much space in our veggie patch, gotta go! It's so easy to get great ideas watching other people work! They put down 2 truck loads of compost today and then we all got busy moving plants around wait until you see the results, truly amazing. We had a blast.

We had a very busy day. I woke up at 4:15am and remembered that today was the day for our bible study with anyone from our neighborhood that wanted to come. We had one woman come and she was a joy to meet with. We had a very special time together and it was obvious that God wanted us to meet with her. It's always so amazing when God tells you to do something and you do it; then you are the one who is blessed. It's like this; the cook always eats well.

Before the meeting at 9:30am I made a loaf of banana bread, a dozen muffins and baked 4 loaves of Kerry's incredible Breakfast Bread. We are hopelessly addicted to it. I gave a loaf away last week and the woman called me to say the bread was, "breath taking." Wow, I never heard food described like that, but this bread is really awesome. I thought I was going to get to kick back and watch the manure/compost get shoveled, but nooooooo I had to go and get ideas. Once I got the ideas, I started digging and moving and hauling and shoooooieeee, I'm tard. But it was so great. We accomplished so much. Tomorrow I'll show you.

Kayla got a bit dirty today, she earned lunch! She is trying to hide. Does she really think a lunch plate can foil me?

Stop taking my picture! I think the little smuch of soot on her cheek looks cute myself.

I love lantana. I don't think the one I put in last year is going to come back :-(

Looks like everyone put in a good days worth of hard work. Can't wait to see it all 'done'.
