Maybe I'll Get to Fill Those Planters With Flowers


The makeover of the new island in the middle of our driveway is close to complete. There used to be two small islands in our very large driveway, but we removed the large trees, then took out the islands. 
 Later it was decided (pushed very hard by yours truly) that we needed to do an extreme makeover of the driveway again. First we got nice light brown gravel.
Then we found two beautiful trees that will provide shade eventually, change colors in fall, provide berries and not just shed needles and cones.
Next JEJ knew he wanted to build a rock wall. He has built beautiful rock walls around our gardens,so why not another? The hard work began.
After that somehow he moved the barrels from another garden and stacked them with the dirt still in them.
I added a few more items and he brought in a load of bark. The finishing touch will be beautiful flowers cascading down from the barrels. Thanks JEJ. Great job.

Wow, I love it! Can't wait to see pictures of the containers filled with flowers. PJ and I are really bad at gardening, etc. but this gave me an idea for my front garden. I'll let you know if I ever get it done! :)
