Fun in the sun


We have spent the past few weekends working on our memorial garden dedicated to Russ. Right after Russ passed away we had to move Mom out of the house. I would run over and feverishly dig up perennials and toss them in the ground anywhere at our house. A few weeks ago we went and bought a roto tiller and made this garden. We still have to finish the walking path- it puts a smile on my face to know that a lot of the plants were from his mother -Grandma Lil.

We have a lot of visitors now that the garden is complete. Russ would have loved it.
