What are you most proud of? the fire pit area. it was a project that came completely out of my head. its hard to explain to your husband what your doing when you dont have a picture to show. but he helped, setting the block, and was my "advisor". he helped when i got stuck. but it was so much fun picking out the stone, setting the stone and cutting the stone! it turned out exactly as i envisioned it. i learned alot with this project. and mostly what i learned? is when you see something done on tv? in a single episode? that its not a "weekend" project. this took me almost a month to complete, start to finish. working every day after work. but know what? it was worth every minute.

You have a beautiful garden and love your pond and fire pit.What are the tall white plants in the view from the road picture?

if you are referring to the plants on the right of the photo, they are dappled willow bushes. their leaves turn a pink color in spring. My mother (from wi) suggested them to me. i was looking for some type of "screen"

oops... i was looking for some type of screen to help block the road while sitting in the fire pit area. unfortunately i cannot plant trees along the edge where the road is, since the town just installed a new water line, so i'm stuck trying to come up with other creative ways to block the view of the road.

Thanks for the name and it looks like it makes a great screen.
