On Sunday it was very nice outside. It may have been the nicest day of the summer so far. It was clear and sunny with no humidity and only about 75 degrees or so. My kind of weather! I was able to level the stones( I use the word level loosely). I planted the flowers I had bought for the edges, then I robbed many plants from around my yard to add to the new flower beds that surround the stones. I wanted it to look like it had always been there. I planted some grass seed and Viola! A new stone patio.
Below are a few pictures that let you know why I am so happy with the end product.
This is when we were first putting in our fence just after buying the house two years ago. (The red chairs are roughly in the same place as in the finished picture.) The junk there is what was removed from the back of the yard.
This is how it looked early this spring.
This is the finally. Yay!
Laying out grounds may be considered a liberal art, in some sort like poetry and painting.
