Upgraded Back Walkway

Our back walkway was narrow and easy to step off of, so we decided to expand it.
So we bought a few more blocks and added to each side in a cross pattern. Lots easier to walk on now.

My Christmas Cactus from Karen

Karen brought me a couple of sprigs of her Christmas Cactus this summer, it was already rooted so I potted it and it has just bloomed. Sure, it's a little early for the season, must have the same DNA as her's.

Sandbox and Swing Set

Frank built a sandbox from old timbers from bridge and some scrap lumber. The sand is just river sand from our banks.
The swing set is a big hit too.

Mulch and Timbers for Yard

We had a huge load of mulch from chipped-up trees in our driveway that we needed to move so finally got around to setting timbers and filling with mulch. Since I didn't want a lot of brush trimmings in the mulch and bushes around house needed trimming, we did that first. When finished, we set up firepit and lawn furniture and will not have to move them now every time we mow.
