Reuseing Cinder blocks to make a fire pit

We had this garden on the side of our house. The garden bed was made from these cinder blocks, but we were looking to make the bed itself smaller or even have a couple of beds. We also had this blank space in the back of our yard, with nothing. So, we thought we would take the blocks and make a fire pit with seating. We just dry stacked the blocks and rotated and staggered them to make them stronger. The fire pit itself, had legs on it, but we removed them to make it fit...Now we enjoy the space that once was blank and boring, and is now inviting. And the garden is much easier to work on!
