Getting Dirty

Talk about experiencing a day in the garden!  I spent 9 hours digging, moving plants, and building a patio. Which, I must say, made me lose every bit of desire that I had to learn how to lay tile.  Laying brick is NOT easy.   Getting all the dirt even and flat was nearly impossible!   To have a perfect patio I would have had to spend three long days making the dirt even.  My goal was to have a nice patio in the garden area for a fire-pit.  I accomplished that goal!  You can definitely tell it wasn't done by a professional, rather, most may guess it was done by a 15 year old.  It was a good learning experience.

Bring on the summer parties with friends around the fire!
