Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

I worked on a slideshow video this morning of photos from our day outdoors yesterday, working in the yard. Sorry, after uploading it to you tube the clarity is lost. It's a bit blurred! Dunno what happened in the interim, *shruggin'*

My 'job' was to clean out the rose box. I wanted to take out the bark and the old rotted plastic weed tarp underneath, then put the bark back in sparingly. Trim the rose bushes back severely to prevent over growth and thin, lanky stems from forming. Then, replace and redesign the figurines that I've had sitting in the box for a couple of years.

Hubby's job yesterday was to tear out the almost rotted accent light wiring and replace the transformer and the lights with new stuff.

It was an all day job that started around 7 a.m. and continued through 'til about 4:30 that afternoon.

Naturally, I forgot to take a 'before' picture of the rose box, so the video/slideshow begins AFTER the figurines were removed and the roses were being trimmed back, into the night hours after dark. Turn up your computer's volume if you have a sound card.......
