Weekend wind down??? Yeah right!! Tell that to the 6 tons of flagstone that the semi-truck dropped off on Friday morning! Phase 1 of our landscape remodeling project was in full effect. For a long time now we’ve wanted to line our gardens with flagstone pavers and fill the beds with slate rock. It took about 8 hours to move it all and get it in place, but in the end it looks great. Fortunately it was exactly the right amount of stone we needed. Unfortunately, my back and hamstrings are killing me! Here are some more pics:
If anyone would like to follow me on Twitter, I have finally started an account. Thanks to Jeremy over at Modest Money for some much needed encouragement. I will warn everyone that I have never used Twitter before, so if I don’t do something right or do something silly, bare with me – I’m learning!
Happy Easter to everyone tomorrow!
