This time of year inspires me. Everything has turned green and my mind is full of projects that I have dreamt about all winter!

My first project was to build a rock wall at the back of our yard. As luck would have it, the farm that is next to our property has rocks aplenty.  With the permission of the farmer I got to work…








Pull…then repeat and repeat and repeat…

We already decided it was fruitless to plant a garden in the back since it is home to so many of our friends.  Bunnies, squirrels, deer and woodchucks.  So it is going to be wildlife friendly!

Mr. Woodchuck seems to like the rock wall too!

The squirrels already found the feeder we put out for them.  I just hope he doesn’t fall in!


Next time: What to do with a six foot privacy fence that spans your entire yard?
