A month of Sundays

Okay, I thought I was a weekend landscape widow before? Over dinner this evening, Husband shared with me his vision of a "water feature" he wants to build in our newly transformed backyard. He wants to take up prime, sunny plant real estate with a pond that will be fed by a small water fall operated by a pump. Stormwater will in some way be routed to the pond, with overflow being siphoned off to a dry creek bed which will be filled with river rocks, but which will also have a large pipe underneath to funnel water to another pipe leading to the street.

Holy no-weekends-off-from-childcare for the forseeable future, Batman!

My husband wanted to do some water thing in our backyard.I told him that ranked so low on my priorities with everything else that needs to be done. If your husband follows through, post some before, during, and after pictures.

Well, it should look really nice when its done. I hate the weekend widow thing. Its not fair, its not like we get to do the same to them often!

I'm sure it will look lovely and be worth it.

Can he come over and do that to MY backyard? I would LOVE that!

Just think, you can sit outside and watch him being all "manly" and sweating and stuff.....

That sounds like a huge job to undertake.

Heh, my husband doesn't want to do ANYTHING to improve our place, except extend our driveway and maybe eventually build a detached garage for the cars.
