    This last summer the Algerian Ivy that covered the north side of the house and porch died! I am not sure why. So... I dug up the area where it was growing and decided to put in a pathway that would connect to the sideyard.

    Here are some "before and after" photos.

    This looking to the East, towards the side yard.


    This is looking to the west towards the front door and the carport.


    Here it is "in progress"


    Stones in place, finally!


    These are "after" photos.

    Looking to the West.


    Looking towards the driveway.


    New garden bed with Mums, Purple Wandering Jew, Alyssum, Lobelia, Snapdragons, Lemon Balm, Spearmint. This bed also has Rain Lilies and 4 O'clocks that will come back next Spring.


    The plan is that the new ivy plant will, in a couple of years, cover the pipe and the front of the house again, hopefully.


    These are the wild violets that will in a few months fill in between the stones.


    And this is the center flowerbed, it has Iris, Squash, Cosmos, Hollyhock, and European Morning Glory Bush. It will be the next bed to be redone for winter.

    Looks great! My yard is a complete mess right now so I have to get my garden joy from others. lol

    I love your BYC page btw. Your girls are so cute! I love the picture of your little barred rock (the one that laid the first egg) when she was 15 days old, I think you posted? She looks very prim and proper lady. So sweet!
