The Progress of the Rake


The Progress of the Rake, originally uploaded by Margo and George.

...but of course, as time passed, the Rake got a little tipsy, and lived up to his name. Nevertheless, in spite of the rain, a good time was had by all at the Hoedown. In fact, they were off-duty today, as I only had to use the trowel and the "dutch cultivator' (?) - a hand-hoe type tool, in order to put my new acquisitions into their new beds. The rain was pretty gentle today, instead of the pelting stuff we got the other day, so the going was easy. Picture of the new (and as yet unfinished) herb garden/rock garden to follow.

I meant to comment on this post, too. Those rakes, can they be trusted? And even though I have a lot of hoes, I don't have one like yours.

Hee hee, yes, the Rake had more than he could handle ... I couldn't resist the pun when I went to post.
Thanks!
