Stones, Stones and More Stones!

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted here.  Summer has come and gone.  We had 'Part 1' of our landscaping done in July and it's amazing what a bunch of dump-truck loads of stones can do!  Horizon Landscaping and their designer, Jim, are the ones who came up with our forest-lawn makeover.  We have at least 4 more installments to go, which will stretch out for several more years, but I am soooo loving the way the stones look.

The inspiration for getting back to my blog was a visit I made to an old, dear friend's son's blog.  He is a stone artist and specializes in dry stack stone work.  Sure wish he wasn't 2000 miles from here, as I'd love to have at least a small section of stone wall fence at our place.  If you want to see some amazing stone work, go visit Mark Jurus at Rockin Walls.

I hope that a few of my blog friends have a chance to stop by & let me know what they think of our latest home improvement.  Blessings to all who pass this way.

It's good to see you back to blogging again, Cassie! I like all the stonework. It is looking great! It must have taken quite a while to do all of that. It will look really wonderful when it is all done.

I love rocks. I always see a giant one (like car size) and tell the hubby "think you can load that up for me"....

He just says "yea, pick up your end and I'll get mine".

Nice to see you back in the blogosphere. The stonework is very nice, and goes well with your house.
