A special place to share all of life's special moments, musings on the days news, or just to say hello. Please, kick your shoes off, have a glass of iced tea, or a hot cup of coffee and read with me awhile. Remember as you go though life to keep the spirit of a child alive in your heart, and you can still see the shadow of a Unicorn while walking through the woods. This site dedicated to my one and only Sweet Pea.

Sure everyone thinks that Sweetpea and I vanished from the ethers NEVER to be heard from again, but I am here to say it ain't so. So, where have we been, why the long absense from such a wonderful place full of great friends. (Special hello here to Nanza and a few others who have stopped by and said hello in my absense) and fabulous writings. Well, as is often the case for us, spring has a way of SLAMMING us two and burying us under a host of duties and responsibilities!
Spring for my wonderful other half is always her HECTIC, CRAZY, even bizarre time of the year, and sure none of you were surprised when she stopped posting for awhile...BUT DREAM DRAGON...where did he go, he was at home recouperating from SERIOUS SURGURY! He has plenty of time to while away the hours here on Bravenet writing about life, love and the great mess we refer to as National Politics. Well, despite my limitations, I had a client that offered me a job I COULD NOT REFUSE, and I have been KILLING myself and my left arm to a large....no, scratch that, a hugh....no, scratch that, a HUMONGOUS landscaping job that has to be done and completed by this upcoming Friday, as they couple are getting married on Saturday.
What started out as a spruce up the place estimate has turned into a full blown out back yard make over with Dream Dragon being allowed FULL AND COMPLETE creative control of the entire thing, and those kinds of opportunities just do not come along that often. My doctor was furious with me for putting my arm under so much stress, my wife was just plain worried to death, and I was just to damn head strong (and bored sitting at home) to turn down the opportunity, so for the past several odd weeks, I have limped home at night with my left arm THROBBING in mortal agony, but feeling on TOP OF THE WORLD, as I love being creative, especially with nature.
The job is coming towards and end, but thought I would share just a couple of quick IN PROCESS shots of the work.
Above shot is first, a lot of landscaping stock freshly delivered. The stone well you see planted had completely collapsted in on itself, but I did not want to trash it, so rebuilt the well, and added a herb garden around it at ground level.
Again, early work...placing of the statury...all the laterns have been wired up, so that they double as lighting for the area, and I've put lattice around the entire perimeter of the multiple level deck that was already there. The large piece is actually a fountain, and on the other side of the deck I have put in a koi pond with small waterfall.
I enjoy using rocks and stone in my work, and the black mulching material as the job is heading towards completion is very daring, and in a monocromatic fashion works well with all the pre-existing birchs on the property.
Pretty intresting however I do have one inquiry.. ? do you have different websites related to this one? Kindly let me know! I will read this again while playing pixel gun 3d online. Check this out on Chrome store.
