And guess what we found…
We had enough rocks to make a full ring around our maple tree! It looks really nice! But there’s other stuff I want to show you:
I also found this. I think it’s a scrunchie. How, compelling…

SO WHO HAS TWO THUMBS AND GETS TO DIG A HOLE?
Now, I’ve dug a hole before and planted a lot of trees a lot drunker than I was while doing this. It’s not rocket science. But, of course, the yard fought with me.
And, I kid you not, under the gravel, plastic!
DID THIS PERSON WANT TO MAKE ME INSANE?
Ok, I get it, it probably was there to trap water or something, but SERIOUSLY, do you need PLASTIC around and under your garden? Cool it, lady!
After a lot of pacing, complaining and sassing, I managed to get back to work.
Finally, I feel like I am getting something done with this yard, it was making me crazy! Next step, well, that is a fine question. I think I need to recover a bit from my plastic tantrum and arm flailing. Cocktail time!
