The outlining stones are just being laid here and of course I had to lose my herb wheel. At the back left of the photo you can see the start of the tea house that hubby built me at the end of the summer which I also did a post about.
Today I took another couple of photos that show some additions to the tea house and what we've been doing this past week. More newspaper, and cardboard too this time, to cover most of the remaining grass and then spreading 5 tonnes of pea gravel. My paths were already pea gravel so it all blends in nicely.
This is the bed I requested to grow the trial plants I receive from Proven Winners in which is why there are black fence barriers around the little shrubs. With a male dog, they're just the right height for that leg to lift. I also bought a couple of yellow Itoh peonies that were planted in the fall; hope I get a bloom on one of them.
The weather has turned cooler here but as soon as it warms up, I'll be able to have my afternoon tea in the shade by the pond again. It will be nice when all the plants are blooming for some colour and fragrance.
