I know .. the pictures are not what I wanted but they are what they are ? (my excuse is I had to take them in shadow .. afternoon sun was hitting all the wrong spaces !)
I finally got some of the plants actually planted, and sunk a rather large stone to become a stepping stone with some river rock .. for "my" door to the garden playhouse ! .. it took me on my knees, working with a "building blast site" .
The deck crew and shed guys compacted the stony earth beyond what I had expected and it was truly hard work getting this done .. the aches and pains are definitely LOUD about the body doing what it should not be doing .. but hey , we are GARDENERS who sometimes have to do a bit of landscaping ?
In any case I think the results are pretty darn nice, considering what it all looked like originally ... phew ! : )
Can you tell I am from the east coast with all of the driftwood .. albeit "lake" driftwood ?
