A Fun Weekend and a Winner!

I spent most of this past weekend here.  We had beautiful weather, although the heat started rolling in yesterday, but it was still pretty. 

We worked on our latest garden project.  It started earlier this Spring from these humble beginnings.  First we had cleared away the pea gravel around the front corner of the gazebo (This area had started out about 20 years ago as the bed for the kids' outdoor play set, and now it has my gazebo sitting on it). 

...Then after a lot of digging, and some very particular arranging of stone, 
 ...and arranging of plants, and some more arranging of stone,

 We now have a little garden pond :)

The pond liner was my latest Freecycle indulgence this Spring.  Hubby had dug it into the ground while I was away in Paducah, and my son gave me some fish for Mother's Day, so this weekend was about adding the waterfall and rock edging...Next, maybe a little accent planting around it :)

And thank you to all for the well wishes for my 450th post.  The winner for my little Give Away was randomly chosen using Random.org today...
Happy Cottage Quilter!

Enjoy the day!
