So much is happening right now. Everything is on the verge of being done and I'm tempted to just wait and post a final reveal.
But that would require patience.
The veggie garden teenager crew did some pretty darn amazing work on the brick pathways.
Lucy now volunteers to get herbs for dinner.
People fight to take out the compost. This is unprecedented.
The only things that still need to be completed in this garden are the gates, the installation of the sink, and a couple of little flower beds near the barn.
Over in the front yard, the plants are getting delivered tomorrow! It feels like Christmas Eve.
It will be hard to get to sleep tonight.
I love the pathways and the new flagstone patio at the top of the hill. Even without the plants and grass, everything is already so improved. The next two days will be big. Plants, sod, steel edging, waterfall pump, mulch.......
You may notice the lovely green abode in the background. As we were walking around the yard, discussing all the changes, XiXi said, "And has anyone else tried the Port-a-Pottie? It's AWESOME!" He totally thought it was staying and was bummed to hear it's going bye-bye with the workers.
There's a stone bridge at the top of the waterfall and then you curve down two steps, and you're back on the path. I love the twists and turns. I never, ever would have come up with that on my own. I wouldn't have thought beyond a single straight path along the crest of the hill. And even that thought overwhelmed me for 9 years.
But eyesore no more!
