    I have no stone whatsoever! So, I was unable to participate. Thanks for taking us on the tour, Heather!

    Gina -- I guess your beautiful brick patio doesn't count. You should have thrown a few pebbles on top of a container as mulch or something so you could join in!


    Thought you might like to see some of the flowers in our No. Calif. garden:

    My mom, Butterfly, has the same little greenhouse that you do. It's turned warm here so she has also stopped using it for the year.

    Here you'll see a little more of our yard and some rearranging going on - there's always something to do in the garden!

    Tammy -- Thanks for stopping by. Your mom seems like quite the character. I hope she's recovered from her injury.


    What a fun post on stone--I'm jealous of your bumper crop! :)

    How old is your house? I wonder if the huge, immovable slab of bluestone is one of those mounting blocks that they used to use to mount a horse or get into a carriage in the old days? There are a few of those still around.

    Kim -- Jealous? Well that's kind of nice since I spent a lot of my time lusting after your garden! The house is something like circa 1905, so I guess it could be a mounting block, but it's in kind of a strange place on the hill there. I guess we'll never know.

    Hi Heather! Sorry it's taken me so long to visit you. You certainly do have a bumper crop of stone and have made the most of it. You have pretty much everything: gravel, stepping stones, steps, walls, and more. Even faux stone! But my favorite of your features is the patio areas: they look so very inviting. I'm sure you get lots of compliments on them and enjoy them greatly. I'll add a link to this post when I update the May Garden Bloggers' Design Workshop summary post at Gardening Gone Wild soon.

    Nan -- No need to apologize, we're all running around busy this week it seems. We do love our patios. We have a small home so they give us a lot more space for all but the coldest winter months.
