When I came home I did some more work on the stone steps. I know, I know! I keep saying I'm done, then I find one that is loose, and I have to either work on packing it in tighter or sometimes move a few around to make them "seat" better. It's close, but I may be doing this for another several weeks. I'm really liking the new configuration of the steps. They are less steep, except for one step, and I'm trying to figure out how to remedy that one. I'll certainly be glad when they are done, at any rate.
I was actually out taking pictures of the flowers in the garden, and I caught the steps in this photo.
(If you want to see any of the pix better, remember you can click on them to enlarge.)
Here are some of the flowers in the garden, my iron kettles and on the deck:
|This is one of the iron kettles that I use for a mixture of flowers.|
|There's a little of everything in my garden, cacti, yucca, wild flowers and store-bought lovelies.|
|One of my favs is this, a South African ground cover that comes in a huge variety of colors. It's the same one that is in my header.|
|Another of those South African ground cover flowers.|
|Black-eyed Susans, seeds I just threw into the rock garden.|
|A Shasta Daisy|
|Whirling Butterflies! I love that name!!|
|Ice Plant or Hearts & Flowers.|
|One of the pots on the deck with a conglomeration.|
|More of the African ground cover.|
.... Life is beautiful!!!!
