All Finished Now Until Next Spring

Lining up the bricks........

Awwwww...one of my son`s toys from years ago that hubby dug up .....

Putting down the sand and sweeping it.....

All done....

The centre, with bits of leaf that was blowing around and stuck here and there. I took these two pictures in the rain yesterday after work. It`s swept away all the excess sand anyway. The lava rocks turn almost the same colour as the heart shaped stone in the middle when the sun shines. .....

I got a couple more potted mums, creamy white this time, and put one here with the other mums and asters along with some I potted myself in early summer. You might notice that in some pictures the bricks look very dark and in others very light. They are inbetween in reality......

Angus was out chasing Isobel, lost her, and gave up.....

Isobel found a good hiding place.....

Tea,
You guys did a great job. It really looks professional. Don't ya just love the watch cats? Thay are so expressive even when they sit and stare. They can be the picture of patience and then be a quick as lightening.
The Mums are gorgeous.
