up the garden path

great excitment this morning, arrival of a big lorry


carefully, carefully, inbetween the tree and the signpost


impressive!
stones into the wheelbarrow and onto the path, you know the one I've been able to see in my minds eye for about five years

they look darker because they're still covered in wet sand


ta da!! I'm away for a walk up the garden path.

Wow, very nice Claire! I've got one of those nice little paths in my back yard as well. It's a road to nowhere. Which suits me fine. :)

That looks lovely!!!!
How pretty!!!

And great idea...I want to do the same sort of thing with my old flower bed, but being that this is a rental..it just isn't worth it.

Derrick, scottish beach pebbles, for when I can tget to the sea. hopefully some sort of path will go all the way round eventually, might need another five years for that though!
Jim, thankyou! I feel I am getting more used to the camera, still need to work out a few things, timer and night shots are next on the list.
Crunchy Carpets, its a crunchy path, I love the sound it makes. no , it would cost too much to do to rental house, unless you planned to stay long term.

Nice touch. Murphy and I will go out in the mountains looking for something to add that pazzza touch such as snags, stumps, rocks, fossils or what every fancy us.

Peppylady, thats a good idea, I think I have a bit of old tree root, I'll start with that.
Allotment 21, thankyou for visiting, I havent stopped by yours for a while, I must do!!
Madcap, the stiffness has set in this morning from shifting those stones, worth it though!
Horizon, your musical stars did a good job!

Looks great.

That certainly is a big lorry.

Enjoy your path.

It looks wonderful Claire, and worth the wait! You sure did a lot of hauling and shoveling. No wonder you're sore. Good work, well done!

Wow, that turned out well, Claire! I'm also impressed with the packaging the stone arrived in. Here, stone would simply be poured willy-nilly out of the back of a dump-truck. I was wily enough one time to get my hands on some paper-tarp to lay down before getting some topsoil delivered. This protected the grass nicely. But, as I said, same thing: 3 cubic tons of soil poured out of the back of a dump truck any old place at all! In fact, the driver was a little perturbed that I insisted he dump the soil exactly onto where I'd laid my paper-tarp ;)
