In the spring of 2009 I asked you to help me in creating a 'grand meadow' for an acre and a half of land. I am attaching a few pictures. It is becoming more and more like the grand meadow I had envisioned!! Thank you.
Hi Howard! Thank you. I absolutely LOVE my meadow!! I have lots of pictures on facebook and have friends who are quite interested in it. You can use whatever pictures or statements you would like to use.
We just purchased a 100 year old 45 ft tall windmill that we will be putting up in the center of the prairie in the next couple weeks. I will be sure to send you a picture when that is up. Just wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed my "Grand Meadow" and am grateful for all the advice you gave me when I was planning and planting it.
