      Great idea Bill.  I've got a large trellis that I'd like to grow something on as a permanent solution, but for photo sessions the netting would be perfect!

      I got a lot done today. Winter debris have been cleared from the entire line and the upper portion has been weeded except for the rust garden. I didn't take time today for pictures; maybe tomorrow. Boss says I must finish the RV repairs before I work on track. Less than 5 weeks until grand-kids arrive. One for the first time and the other since she was a baby.

         Nothing like visitors to get a railroader's butt in gear!

      Sure does John.  Got the official word this afternoon while we cleaned the boat out on the lake :) 42 days and counting.

       

      The East End gardening is about done.  I'm sure the weeds will be back before the kids arrive, but hopefully not as bad. Got out and took a few cell phone shots this evening. No trackwork has been done. I put down a little ballast for photos when the plantings went in, but nothing is straight or level. The track geometry crew has been called. Waiting on a call back

       

      My neighbor and I are speaking again. She got mad at me when I protected the engine house from her trash cans after a high wind forecast by tying some rope across her trees. Last weekend  I bailed her out by loaning her a pressure washer wand. Now she's my best friend (lord help me). Anyway - she came over while I was weeding here and asked if I would like her to replace all this border trash with Hosta and I almost did a happy dance   Something is eating the Creeping Jenny but the Solomon's Seal has exploded. It loves this spot...

       

      Focus could be better, but I'm too lazy to dig out the camera...

       

      While we were beached on an island today I was noticing a lot of native plants that thrive in the same light as I have here. Going to take some buckets and potting soil next trip!
