Another brick patio!

For the longest time, we'd been contemplating what to do with this last open area in the back yard. We had leftover bricks, and James had an idea about a semi-circle garden, where you'd be surrounded by flowering plants. I offered a vague cloverleaf design, and off he went! 

In the meantime, I searched Craigslist and miraculously found a set of four green wooden chairs AND an iron bench in nearby Bulverde. We bought'em right up Saturday night! 

By day's end on Sunday, James had FINISHED! Yesterday, we spent most of the day moving rocks and hauling compost. We widened existing beds to mesh with the new gardens and patio. (Sorry, most of my photos aren't so good because I left my little point-and-shoot on nightscape mode. James shot the last photos.)

You inspire me with your rock borders...I also have rocks, rocks everywhere. Now I see what you have done, so now I look forward to carrying and moving rocks to make my own borders.
