A Sunny Day


And friends and family of the soon-to-be wed couple turned out for another work day ...

Shrubs were pruned ...

Stepping stones were laid in place .. .. .

Potting soil was hauled . . .

Mulch was spread . . .

The new stone steps were surrounded with mulch and plants . . .

Gloating over progress took place . . .

Wine chilling in the branch . . .

LOTS of stepping stones  . . .

I wimped out around three and went up to our house . . .

But I'm told that all the stones got set . . .

What a day! The temperature was in the low sixties -- amazing  considering that we were covered in snow on Wednesday!

Just gorgeous! The day. The landscaping. Will the wedding take place outdoors? What a perfect setting!

Weather willing, the wedding will be outside, Kath.

Simply beautiful! And working as a team what a souvenir.

You've got a great team that put together a little piece of heaven there!

Mel said...

We're in a thaw too, but nothing as glorious as 60 degrees. I imagine the wedding will be perfect in such a beautiful setting. And what a lovely reminder the stepping stones will be.

What an ambitious crew!
The results are, no doubt, stunning!
The sunshine! The sunshine!

I hope there is more than one bottle of wine in the creek. Given the number of workers and the difficulty of the work, it looks like a three-bottle job to me.

Vicki Lane said...

Oh, yes -- there were mimosas at the beginning of the day, beer all along, and a toast in bubbly at the end of the work. The picture of the bottle was taken by Cory, my "other son."

How exciting to see such fast progress - and to have a fine day for it.

Wow, that's a tremendous amount of work! Phew.
