A Different Kind of Quilt Block

This week’s been one of hard labor. Why? Because we decided to turn our garden into a patio since actual gardening is kind of out. Of course, that meant a whole lot of digging and leveling and… well, hard work. Took us several days and we’re not all done yet, but the biggest parts are done. See?

We had some help from family with the laying of the tiles. A friend commented that it looked like a quilt block, which… it does. Not the intention but I really like the idea lol. I’m so happy with it :-). Just spent a couple of hours simply sitting down and enjoying the setup.

We managed one small addition yesterday:

Aren’t they pretty? Solar lights. Apparently, they need a couple of days to fully be charged, but I can’t wait to see them glow. They’re pretty as they are, though, and I love them.

The idea is to eventually get plants to go between them, but I haven’t figured out what kind I want yet.

    I already responded to the patio space before, but….I love those lights! They are much prettier than our solar stakes. Plus, y’know…BLUE…so kiddo would be all over them. πŸ™‚ I’m so glad the project is largely complete, and you can enjoy it — preferably while recovering!!

      I haven’t been able to be out there the last two days due to headache, but I’ve been out in the mornings a few times now. It’s nice.
