This is the half way point of the path that circles around

 The very bottom where I have been burning the leaves etc.

Landscaping an the bail of hay

Photo: This place set back evolution about a million years. It was not my chance. All this was a God design
We lived in Kansas for 17 years and we loved it. So we had to get a bail of hay

Lansscaping Update Upper Property View

 I am going to call this project the Chad Whisnant Project

 The upper end of the property way to the left and this section of trees I have always enjoyed.

This view I was standing looking toward our house. Our house is to the far right side. Kindra's is the center house and the roof top is Debbie's house

A View of the trees from this angle


Still on the upper left side of the upper property I have cleaned out these two trees and still come work left.

This view I took from Doug's drive way looking up from the road to the left side.

This is again the upper left and this is a spot that I want to work on.

Landscapting Update June 2013

The hill is so steep that I thought I would put some steps down the hill. These bricks came from the neighbor next door at Rivers of Joy Baptist.  I have never tried to lay steps before. I had a good time trying to figure out how.

I am going to call this project the Kyle Whisnant Project

. This is the second or third effort June 15, 2013  In securing the bricks for step.  Then you can see the brown mulch between the trees.
Stage one here, Charity put the flowers and now the mulch.

 Saundra Temple  said I might want to put a half way place where people could rest coming up the hill. So I thought I just might do that. Of course I had never tried this landscaping.  And as you see its a start in this effort.  But I took the tile that was on the front patio and place them down. I am still working on this project June 15, 2013

These three trees are in the left side of the house in the back.
I want to do some landscaping there, just do not know what yet
