What a busy weekend in the yard. I am completely exhausted and very proud of what I accomplished. My husband helped only in transferring of some blocks. I did the rest myself.
This is what the back of our deck looked like Thursday afternoon with the garden hose marking my intentions.
After a lot of work which included carrying 60 bricks, 14 lbs apiece from the store to the truck to the backyard, this is what it looks like now.
A little bit of child labor never hurt anyone.
The finished wall.
Of course it really isn't finished. I still need to add the edging to the back, more soil and then plant my sweet peas that have been patiently waiting in their little plastic boxes on the patio. But then, when is a yard truly finished?
By the way, I wasn't the only Mommy who was busy this weekend.
