Before we started, we mapped out the new beds using garden hoses. Then, we headed off to Home Depot and spent way too much money on plants.
A beautiful flower bed edged in the stones that Matt has been bringing home in the trunk of the car all month (don't even ask!)
The path isn't dug in yet, but he assures me he'll be doing that this week. It's NC field-stone, purchased from our favorite outdoor store, The Rock Shop. Half a ton of it, actually.
Love my Hostas!
Welcome to fairy land!
It took most of two days, and by the end of it, I was so thankful to come inside and turn on my computer, but I'm really excited about the back yard. Three summers in the house and it is really starting to transform into our space!
Now that I've showered and run a few loads of laundry through, I need to find my writing head space again. Maybe a walk first to clear my head, but I am hoping that a weekend of rampant yard creativity will get my juices flowing when I sit down to write tonight.
What did you do with this beautiful weekend?
