Healthy Garden Competition

My neighbor (mother) has been quite busy next door working on expanding her garden. She’s laid out her plans to build new garden boxes, herb boxes and even plant some fruit trees. I think that she was a little envious of my big garden last year and has caught the gardening bug. She is going to be using concrete blocks to build the garden boxes and is planning to have my father stucco them and mosaic one end. I don’t quite see her vision yet, but I’m not going to doubt her. She told me a few years ago that she was going to build a tree house in her back yard. I was skeptical to say the least. I was wrong…what can I say other than my mom is awesome. I will have to post some pictures of the tree house. It is quite a sight. Mark and I stayed in it overnight a few weeks ago. It has running water, toilet, fireplace and a coffee maker.
