Almighty Progress

The professional rock wigglers were here this morning. A brief description of what was needed was all it took. In three hours the two of them did this. I like it!

The one thing I am not looking forward to, getting the underlayment and rubber liner placed under the falls, keeps getting put off. There are piles of rocks to move and bodies to use. I think I will just have to let the next spare body that shows up help me do this.

Why do I keep thinking I need to do this by myself? I could use another set of hands.

My rock stacking looks a bit different than the professional wigglers at this point. Different rock pile, different base. They should blend together more as I go higher. I hope.

But I was in the hole today with two rock fetchers helping. The sun and I are no longer on speaking terms.

Dusty round river rocks and a black rubber liner on a cloudless hot summer day makes for scorching. I was completely soaked even though I had drained the pond down to the spit in the bottom. Drip, drip, drip.

Three years ago this was a sad patch of grass. I am making progress on the Almighty Falls. It can be done. Give me two more weeks to run time and a month of fiddling for aesthetics.

You can be most happy with the way things are going. Pretty.

It is coming together Lisa. I look forward to it being done and moving on to the fiddling and aesthetics stage.
