He missed his calling, I think. The back yard is really shaping up, he got more river rock and a couple more stones last night. The hostas are getting devoured by slugs. The usual treatments don't seem to be working. I read somewhere that they don't like lava rock, so Steve came home with a few bags of it last night to put in around the hostas to see if that stops them. If it works, he'll put it around the rest of them.
I think when it is all done it will be time for a sisters only brunch on the patio furniture before it really heats up. The last one I did was so fun, it was a great time just sitting there visiting with the girls.
