Todays work

preparing the base for the Buddha

Buddha with the 5/16th crushed black gravel!
My daughter installing the polished rock, we used the crushed gravel underneath to help with drainage

the 5/16th crushed black gravel is in! I think it looks so good!

we dug out more for the additional pavers

four more rows to install, two 20" and two 12" then the border

and I brought out the chairs to see how they look, I'm really happy so far!

Back Yard Make Over has Begun!

So this is a new project I started! We got a break in the weather so I had to work kinda quick!
During the winter our grass rotted out because of all the rain.

Sunday Feb 22nd

Pulling the 16" pavers out

Monday the 23rd

I re used the 16" pavers for the boarder

found a sprinkler head, the round thing at the corner of the closest paver. I have to change my design now...

laying the 16" pavers back in for a border

adding a low block wall also...

my helper.... actually he just steals my tools....

Tuesday the 24th, figuring out the new design around the sprinkler head.

found a buried hose to the sprinkler system

the Gold and Silver medalists

the new design...

row by row, brick by brick...

Finally, they help dig out the grass roots...

starting to sprinkle a bit...

Started to pour rain so I get a few days off to rest!

Good for you....

Went to grab a few groceries and this is what came home...
we're eating good food.

 My new favorite juice.... 
Pure Earth from Del Monte
100% Juice... and it's delicious! I'm substituting one bottle for breakfast and one for lunch

Winter Blooms

 My Hellebore's are blooming in the garden,
is nice to see such beauty in all the gloomy winter days...

I'm not much of a rose person but I saw these discounted and the coloring is so pretty I had to buy them to put on my desk!

They're ready to hang and will be available soon!

  I wanted to come up with something to add to the distinct Urban Soule style paintings,
And these stretched canvas circles were perfect!

Which one?

Thinking about making one ...  or both of these into a sticker....

 Should I do both? Or just one? Which one? What size?
so many decisions! Help!
