This is the end of the wine bottle border. Couldn't come up with a clever way of ending it, but I think this worked pretty well. (It's one giant tree root in this area, so digging wasn't an option).
The "Shade Walk" is really just the utilitarian side of the house where all of the utility meters and such are mounted. The old flower cart loaded with houseplants did the trick pretty well. Thanks to Carol C for assembling all the junk in my garage into something pretty!
Yesterday we had 50 people or so here for a "shorts and flip flops" casual lunch to celebrate the birthday, so I'm getting off to a slow start this morning. I guess it's time to get moving......have a great day!
