Backyard Retreat

We are so close to completion on our backyard projects.
The brick fire pit is beautiful and in use nearly every night.
The geometric herb garden was completed on Thursday. Jeremy and I figured out the design and he did the tilling and digging while I went to Ferguson's Fragrant Nursery to purchase the plants. After supper we put them all in the ground. While I put the kids to bed, Jeremy completed the drip system to each new plant and we gave them a drink. Eventually there will be a fountain (cheaper and easier to maintain than a water feature/pond) in the center of the herb garden and a grape arbor (or wisteria or climbing rose) with a bench/swing underneath at the back of the herb garden.
Jeremy has worked very hard, often too hard, on this backyard transformation. Hopefully one of these days he can relax and enjoy it!
