I had plans, plans and more plans for what I needed to do in the cool weather before spring burst out. Now I'm way behind and I haven't even started.
But here's one task that we did this week. Jim assembled and installed the little arched footbridge over the dry creekbed.
|The bright cedar color will fade to silvery gray and fit in nicely|
We had to build the level of the ground ramping up to the bridge a bit, so there is black soil at both ends that looks mounded, but it's just the color contrast with the grass that makes it look hilled up. It's actually flat and all will blend together when new grass is planted.
|From a distance I like how it settles into its little swale.|
I like it, even in its raw looking state before the grass fills in and before it fades to a softer color.
Now, on to other spring projects. The cold weather will return. There is still a lot of chilly April to get through, and even ten more days of March. We can't keep breaking temperature records for all that time, can we?
