Your hard work is going to beautiful once you have planted all your plants. Can't wait for those pictures, I did a big project like this last summer at the end of my laneway still have space for some plants and trying to figure what to finish it with.

the weather sure has sucked today hasn't it. Your working hard there...I can't wait to see it when some of the plants are in. What are you doing with the walkway to the house....are you using field stone or interlock??

Eventually (aka when my ship comes in!!) I would like to use fieldstone. I am not much of a conformist and much prefer the natural look!!

There will be another one on the left side of that garden to the side door.

Ahhhh...imagine the possibilities!!LOL

K off to check her 6/49 numbers!! :lol:
