Well, it took me a couple of years but, I finally finished a small corner of our yard. Somewhat to my amazement, it looks quite pretty. For those of you thinking that this is not a very big accomplishment, after 2+ years, let me just add that we have 4 (young) big dogs. They run and play hard and our yard takes quite a beating. So claiming a people's corner is actually sort of a big deal. Well, for me anyway.
Here is what the corner looked like a few years ago. We had just gotten two new puppies (because yes we are a little bit crazy) and, one side of our fence had just been blown over. Because sometimes the universe likes to mess with you.
I built the fire pit several years ago from some extra pieces of flagstone that we had leftover from a different project. It doesn't look like much in this picture but, it made the corner into a fun place to sit and hang out.
We had a couple of tables and chairs in the area but that was about it for decor. And back in the corner, I had at one point tried to grow a small garden, but mostly it was just a dirt patch.
