"Honor your father and mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you." Exodus 20:12
Last fall, I visited my father for a few days with the intentions of "helping" him with a project. Mind you he's in construction, so I wasn't sure how much help I'd actually be. This back-yard creek was his current project at the time; however, there were no plants. When he heard I wanted to help, he purchased plants. Then he purchased more plants. Lots of plants. Almost 200 if I remember correctly. Virtually every plant and tree you'll see was planted by the two of us in ONE day!

Here's a close-up of the waterfall. Eventually, that PVC pipe will be covered.
We had the best time working together that day and loved what we saw. However, when we awoke the next day, we were even more amazed. In Dad's words, "This is gonna be more awesomer than I thought!" (He likes to be goofy, at times.)
Dad, thanks for letting me help with one of your projects. I just wish we lived closer so I could help more often.
