When the neighbors AC unit finally stops running my backyard sure is a nice quite and cozy place to be. The view from my glider is just perfect.
I told you about my stone shaping and piecing skills and some of you wanted pictures (probably to verify that I wasn’t exaggerating my natural born ability with rock, hammer and chisel), well I present to you the proof…
When we started work on our backyard my only hope was to make it more usable. Because it is so small I wanted every inch to have a purpose.
and some nice little flower beds for me to fill with colorful plants (and try to keep them alive).
I am so excited because our yard is turning into the yard we pictured when we first started planning our task. There is still more to be done such as a couple of side table for the glider, a little slide for a little open shady spot we have and some plantings in a few of the open areas we have left. I am already formulating plans to expand my garden space for next year and Luke is already trying to make sure that I don’t start tearing out the grass to make way for corn stalks, onions, carrots, pumpkins or more tomatoes.
But, I sure am happy to have my own little quite place to sit and think and spend time with my family…especially when the neighbors AC unit finally stops running.
