    This probably should be in the picture forum, but I thought that I would post it here

    I was bored today, so decided to go out to mom and dads and redo their flower box out front.

    This is the before picture

    thats the old man in the background watering down the soil

    Here is another pic:

    This project was not fun because of the following reasons

    1. ANTS!!!
    2. The current flower box there was not square with the house, so I had to remeasured everything off from the house, so I couldn't use the flower box already there. That is why you might notice how the old flower box and the stones don't run really parallel with each other
    3. I measured wrong. 6 stones short (you can see on the one side) I did pick some more up tonight so I will have to finish it tomorrow
    4. I sent my dad off to pick up some more stones to finish the project....he got the wrong color. So he had to take them back and get the correct color.
    5. Did I say ANTS!!!
