My yard, silly! What were you thinking I meant?!?!?!

I just realized that I’d told you all about the six yards of stone that we had delivered but never did show you what we did with it so here you go!

Underneath our great room, hubby had put a patio and he went ahead and extended the walkway to the deck stairs:


It was a lot of work but, fortunately, the man has patience:


Its so much prettier now:


Along the end of our driveway, we have a row of nice tall hedges which give us some privacy. I don’t have the best picture of it but you can sort of get the idea here:


No, that’s not the nice tall hedges you’re seeing in that picture. That’s the peony that was planted underneath them. How do I know its a peony? Cause my friends Katie and Angie told me it is.

Here’s what it looks like now, though:


Much prettier! Its hard to explain (and comprehend) in this last picture but when you enter the yard from the driveway, where the point and light are, the grass almost forms the bottom of a heart. This was not done intentionally but I positively love the end result! Every time I walk into my yard, I feel like its giving me a great big hug!
