I was getting discouraged because I seemed to being making such slow progress on the front bed. I realized that because I was working across the whole bed, it seemed as if nothing much was getting done. So last night, I promised myself that I would zero in on a small section and work there exclusively today. I chose a hibiscus next to a sabal palm to be my designated target area.

I alternately added dirt and layered trimmings from the mango in the back yard to create the desired banked up area around the hibiscus and the palm.

At the end of the day, there was a noticeable difference but it still seemed “puny” when compared with the image I had in my mind when I started.

I reminded myself that I had cleared a fairly large section of the back yard and trimmed quite a bit off my mango tree. It still seems a small accomplishment, but it’s progress. Slow but steady wins the race.

The faeries are very supportive.They think we’re doing just fine!
