The other half...

Hip Hip Hooray! Well, we're just about where we wanted to be at the end of this weekend. The stones that can be laid are laid. We still have the pathway to the alley to do but that requires some additional excavation before we can get going there. And, we have a little meandering pathway to the side yard to do but we'll need some more gravel to accomplish that. We hauled in about 5 wheelbarrow-loads of compost from our pile in the front yard to fill in between the new patio and the house...something more nutritious for the future plantings than the rocky, clay bedrock-like stuff we have left over from excavating.

Voila! One stone patio made to order.
Now we need to use the upcoming weekdays to recover our worn-out bodies. Too bad it is the start of bike-to-work week and I've signed up to pedal to Bellevue daily. No rest for the weary!
