…On the patio, that is! Mike is making a lot of great progress on our new patio. The retaining wall is all built up and now we’re laying out the top patio blocks.
I definitely helped with carting some of those blocks from our driveway to the patio spot… not easy! We are really happy with it so far. DIY is never easy but through trial and error, I think it will be really nice. Mike even constructed a DIY firepit into the corner (see the above photo, towards the bottom right).
You can see the blocks better in the above photo. We still need to adjust a few and keep going. My mind is already fast forwarding to a table with umbrella and brightly colored candles and pillows! Patience is a virtue! Please disregard the rest of the backyard which is WEEDS. We weeded some of our front flower beds this evening, and even got a close up of these beauties:
The lilly is my favorite, as it has JUST opened and was planted by my grandmother. I also love our “snowball” bush which is going to be out of control HUGE in a few days.
