Party shoes meet work shoes.
Mark and I rototilled a space behind one of our houses to make a community garden for the tenants. A garage and workshop used to stand in this space, so there was lots of rubble under the ground. Even after running the rototiller, I couldn’t put a shovel in the earth without hitting rock.
This is the pile of bricks and rubble pulled out of the garden.
And this is the garden. I put in a few plants, but to my delight the residents immediately planted the rest.
It will be a happy garden. That was the work, Wednesday night was play, we saw Shemekia Copeland at the ark. What a great show for blues lovers, Shemekia’s voice is amazing and she’s got a great band. Last night we watched a lot of local bands take the stage at the Power Center in tribute to the Beatles. It was part of Summerfest in Ann Arbor, a great night. Lots of work, lots of play. Maybe I’ll go back to bed now.
