Brick patio update (we've got a fire pit!)


Our newest garden addition is, I'd say, officially complete! Last week, Matt Rios with Matt's Custom Welding in Fredericksburg delivered our custom-made gas fire pit. See the emblems he had cut out in each quadrant? They represent our Texas Wildscape! With James' approval, I selected: a lizard to symbolize the lizards, frogs, snakes, and other crawly critters that inhabit our gardens; a hummingbird for our birds; a leaf for the plants and trees; and OF COURSE a SPIDER for the insects, butterflies, caterpillars, spiders and other buggy creatures (the spider's for ME, too!). Matt did a really nice job on our pit.



Today, we drove up to Progress Waste Solutions (IESI) south of Johnson City to pick up some crushed glass to go around the fire pit. The glass is free; you just have to take your own containers and load it up yourself. As you can see, they've got TONS of it! Then James arranged it around the pit's base. Looks pretty good!
