Finally !!!!

They started yesterday morning .. Sept 9th ... I had to wait until they left for the day to take a couple of pictures because I wasn't feeling well.
Today I have to get on board and talk to Wayne about the design as it is going ..
They started in the back first ... so these are "in progress" pictures and two special stones we found along with special butterfly that afternoon in the garden on Nanho Blue buddliea .. made me SMILE!

The sod lifted out
Weed barrier and stone dust
Gorgeous limestone

First stone heart
Second stone heart
Too cute to believe !

Special guest butterfly ...

I am a happy gardener ... thank you for all the comments I have yet to publish (forgive me for being slow .. being unwell really put a crimp in my routine) this has made me VERY happy though so I am trying to catch up !
More pictures to come as the progress continues !

Congratulations Joy! I replaced my patio last year with flagstone and I couldn't be more pleased. Mind you the 1 week job turned into 2 but the extra time and wait was sooooooooooooo worth it ! Your hearts are an extra touch.

Dear Mr. TOG Thank you so much !
I am really happy it has started .. can't wait to see the end of it either so I can go back to work in my garden.
This little break from it really helps!

Hello Cheryl and thank you so much :)
It always takes longer than expected for any job around here .. but I know it will happen so that takes the edge off ? haha
I love these hearts so much!! too funny to find them in the rocks : )

Thank you so much Diana .. the limestone is so Kingston ... that is how a lot of people refer to Kingston as the Limestone City, so having it as our pathways etc .. is perfect !

Stand in the garden with a martini in one hand and a shotgun in the other and they'll be finished in a jiffy. Works every time!

I came from Cheryl's blog...We had a stone pathway put in 2 years ago.. no hearts, but we love it.. You have a beautiful yard...Michelle

It's looking good Joy. Glad it got done in the end. Hope you're feeling 100 percent soon.

Thank you so much Michelle .. I have waited a long time for this to happen and I so want it to be as perfect as possible : )

Thank you Paula girl .. I am trying to work on the getting better SOON .. this certainly takes my mind of myself .. I just love seeing it in progress but can't wait for all the projects to be done!

Thanks Jen girl .. it is slow work because I think our company is multi-tasking a lot but we don't mind .. I am imagining it for next year when it is all done and ready for me to play in!LOL


If you're like me--and I know you are!--you'll LOVE not having to deal with lawn maintenance anymore. Taking out my lawns was the best decision I ever made. I can't wait to see your "afters." This is sooooo coooool!!!! Hugs.

YES !! I will do before and after pictures if my landscaper ever finishes this job !!!! hahaha
