Got dirt?

Yesterday, I went over to the town of Guadalupe, Arizona. This is one of those towns that is scary even to drive in during the day time. But .... we needed a load of dirt and this place has the best prices. My husband didn't get his day off this week so I got the load of dirt.

When he got off work yesterday, he shoveled the dirt. It took one truck load to fill both planters. (Remember, he made these two weeks ago)

Today, I went to 6 different nurseries. The nursery that is a block from my house had the best selection and the best prices. Doesn't hurt to check them all out - plus it was a fun day. I'll be going back there to get more plants for these planters.

I picked out these four roses trees in different colors (yellow, red, lavender, orange). I'll put two in each planter. I haven't decided what else to put in there. It will have to be something that "likes" hot Arizona sun every day - all day long.
The pool tile is being installed tomorrow morning - woohoo!Posted by Picasa
