lots of work

Wow, it has been a long haul to get to this post! I kept thinking - oh now I can take a picture and post - but then another thing would come up and I would again be delayed.

We've been working steadily for about a month now on designing and building a gate, a trellis, and landscaping (involving relocating a stone wall).

So, here's the pictures finally:

The first picture is the "Grand View" of the new (partially finished) fence line, the relocated wall (dry stacked), the "snowflake" gate, and the trellis.

The second picture is intended to give you a view of the wall and fence.

The third picture is of the new landscaping sans wall. Digging up the wall that was there was quite a chore - at least three feet down and mortered together.

The rest of the pictures are of the gate and trellis construction between the two houses.
