Clear Path

Yes, we still have to get rid of the quarter ton of stone on the lawn and the leftover pavers, but the path itself is complete! The dude put in another long day on Saturday. (I couldn't get good photos until the sun came out on Monday.)


Look at those fine curved edges!
(Ignore the gravel and the pavers all over the lawn. In fact, ignore the lawn all together...and the rose bushes...)









This part is the path from the driveway; it used to be cement. Yay for young men with sledgehammers.
















Making the path curve out to the width of the step was my neighbor's idea. Now the path, she has a girlish figure.

And I am so damn happy every time I walk on it! That dude, he is something special.

As are you all. Thanks so much for your encouraging comments on my finishing. It is indeed a relief to have them done, though the finishing pile runs deep.
