This is the brick side-walk we finally finished 2 week-ends ago.
Dr. Dh has been wanting to mess with it since.
(Actually he's had this in mind for about 7 years. Finally got around to it. I keep telling him if he would just manage his time better he could get more done. Brouhaha. Seriously, if he dies first his epitaph will read, "I didn't get as much done as I wanted to.").
We'll be re-doing the middle garden bed in the spring (the one in the lower right of picture with the garden edging all torn up- we had to move it to dig the side-walk and wanted to cover yet another cistern 'cause the grass will not grow over it)..It will still there but re-configured.
It defines a great little outside space for our front yard fire pit. In non-drought years you can find us outside on most spring/summer/fall evenings, going back and forth from the swimming pool, garden, roasting S'moes ("they're S'Mores, Buzz") and pushing cats off of our laps.
A small retaining wall for the front garden bed.
(please disregard dead stuff. Lots of trees, shrubs and perennials were dessicated by the drought).
There's a small area between the side-walk and the wall that we've transplanted mini-carnations in to. When not in bloom it's a interesting grass like plant. See...
