Mike and I hired a fellow on the next street over to bucket the 22 yards of gravel dumped out front to the back on Tuesday; we had just finished all the planting the night before.
Mike and I spent all Tuesday from 3:30 until 9:30 spreading the gravel, and then Mike and Martin finished the play area off with rubber mulch.

|this it what the rubber mulch looks like...ground up recycled tires, super springy to walk on, and will absorb some of the hurt from any falls the kids have. Love it.|
I have a few flower pots to plant, and we can putz around with the dry creek bed as I picked up a fountain yesterday for it. I may have to look at plants this weekend for the creek bed, as the nurseries are all having their sales to get ready for the end of the season, which is July 1st. So plant choices are limited, but up to half off as well. I like hens and chicks, creeping thyme, and a neat red plant called Dragon's Blood stonecrop.
