I thought I'd make a post to give a little photographic tour of the gardens here at our home - just to give a little idea of what I'm taking about when I mention the 'back border' or the 'side border' and so on.
The last couple of photos are of a little project my husband, Dave, has on the go right now. I'll post more on it later, but we are turning the area that had an above-ground pool on it into something else. Kind of 're-purposing' the area after we took out the pool last spring. Dave put nice brick around it (or what we call 'Man Size Lego). We filled in with gravel, leveled it off, and tamped it down. Next we are going to put limestone on it, similar to what's in the limestone walkway, and have a firepit in the middle of it! Dave is also going to put in an arbour with a little path down to what he calls the 'Serenity Deck' (I love the name) which is a little deck partway down the bank of the creek that runs behind us. It's going to be a lovely place to sit and listen to the birds.
I hope you enjoy the tour!
Have a wonderful day everyone! Enjoy your gardens.
