Flagstone pathway coming along...

Category: Creating an English Cottage Garden | Posted: Sun Aug 16, 2009 12:37 am

I can't belive it has been over a month since I wrote in my blog. Time sure flies. I almost have the fence complete, only one more hole to dig and three sections to go in. I have gotten several loads of flagstone (including some my great-grandmother had put in at the "old" house up north at my parents. Quite a find with many nice pieces. Makes the garden mean all that much more to me). I have layed out all of the pathway I can, now I just need to find more funds to purchase more flagstone. I also have to figure out how to get the sidewalk out. Even though I said I wouldn't plant anything until next year, the temptation of season end prices have gotten the better of me. I acquired a couple of small hibiscus trees, as well as some Echinacea, Foxglove and a Candy lily (which I have never seen before but is very eye catching) that had a white liatris growing with it in the same pot. 2 for 1 is always good!!! I weeded, added compost and topsoil to the area and I have the start of a nice looking sunny patch of perennials. There is still room for more plants so perhaps I will make another trip to the nursery!!! I have two days off without kids next week so I will begin the laborious process of digging out the flagstone pathway. Need to get some sand before that though. Lots of work to do yet and fall is quickly approaching.

I was just wondering the other day how you were getting on. Well done with the fence - not long now until it's completed and you can pat yourself on the back knowing you did it all.

You must show us some photographs of the work in progress as well as some of your new plants.

I'm impressed and inspired! Those two projects have been on my list for a while now! It won't be long until you've transformed the place into your own piece of Shangrila!

I have rocks in my garden that I got from my grandparents' homestead... it surely does add special meaning. I'm glad you could get some of your grandma's flagstone... that's so special.
