But, back to the catch up of the last couple of week's activities.
I love the path I built around my vegetable garden last year. Not only does it make it easier to mow around the garden, it protects my plants from the lawnmower's blades and my shoes don't get muddy when I work on the beds.
However, since I've never built anything correctly from the ground up, I have to fight the weeds from overtaking the path. This was what I faced this year:
|Along the Sides|
|The Worst Spot|
This year will be known as The Year of the Creeping Grass. I just can't keep it out of the beds.
But, I finally finished and I'm pleased with the results.

For a whole day, this Robin sat on top of our garage and tweeted his authority over the building. He would leave occasionally - probably for his lunch break - but always returned to keep up the appearance of his dominance over all other Robins.
