How Does Your Garden Grow?



Lower stairs installed. Path centered and leveled with crushed stone. Waiting for the mason to arrive and set the pavers.


The old footing still needs to be removed.


Normal temperatures for this time of year. Brrrr, too chilly for me, but a bonus of three 42s!


The granite steps waiting for their wrought iron rails.


Dedo at his new guard station.


The walk, loam, and grass seed


The Japanese maple turning color and a rainbow


Still Spring at the mailbox


A blustery day and one of the panels blew out from the greenhouse. This doesn't bode well for surviving the Winter.


Little, green peppers


Milkweed seeds waiting for the winds to send them onto their next adventure


A morning glory blooms in the grass


Trees in the woods turning yellow and orange


Lots of acorns in the grass


I almost forgot about the October Welcome mat.


50 shades of grey in a simple 3 block pattern.


Flamingo races. Bones holding the pole position while Skelly comes up fast on the inside. Wait. Something isn't right. It looks like Skelly got thrown. Let's see that from another angle.


Yup, he's down and sitting on his laurels.


Too bad.

  5. I know you might miss the brick -I mean, the brick was cool- but I love this. They did a great job, too.

    Your woodland view is such a delight in any season. I could sit there and enjoy that for hours on end.

    1. I like the old-fashioned look of brick. This walk is neat and will outlast us. It's a pretty area. Quiet. Rural. Lots of farms around. I like the slow pace and outside the window there is always a bird, chipmunk, squirrel or rabbit to watch. Calli and Quill are enjoying the views.

  6. The walk way looks great. They did a super job, and this is much more updated! And I hope the greenhouse can be winterized. I'd hate to see you lose it in a deep snow. Your house/yard is looking amazing CJ. Happy Sunday. Its a cold wind here today.

    1. Amazing? I wouldn't go so far to say that. The yard has a very, natural look and needs some heavy duty landscaping. So it doesn't look all weeds.

  7. I am a big fan of bricks, but I actually LOVE these gray pavers. They really look fabulous.

    Sorry CJ. It was 78 F here today. And we even got a little rain last night to cool things off a bit.
