I'm making a new flat top for the arbor in the garden; the old curved one is too tall.  My workshop has a dust-collection system for the first time.  The vacuum with the tall white cloth bags can be seen in the background.  It's connected to the saw by the white 4-inch drain pipe on the floor.  The racket of the saw and the vacuum makes it necessary to wear ear protectors (actually Bose headphones).

Lynn's gardening progress: Yesterday I had a wonderful time preparing the soil and planting for hours in the new garden area out front.  Designing a new garden is fun—keeping color of leaf and flower, size, height, bloom time etc. in thought as you work.  But as you gardeners know, most things can be moved!  Here's one I planted, it's a sweet tiny blue-eyed grass (sisyrinchium angustifolium).  Big name for a 1/4" flower!
