  3. Yes, that is the firepit. But after we dug our basement we had 51 boulders. That is with me only counting the huge ones. Hubby wanted to use them as back fill, I said NO! We had to get 2 truckloads of dirt to go back around the house to have enough to replace the rocks. They are everywhere, at the driveway, ect. The thing is once they are set they dont move! I keep extending out, but my rocks dont! Lol...

  7. Your blog is beautiful, Brooke. To be the custodian of such a vast garden and to have designed it all yourself is amazing. I can't wait to enjoy everything you share on these pages.

  8. Hi Brooke. It's me again - I also had to add how envious I am of all the wonderful rocks you have in such abundance. I love using rock in the garden, but as it doesn't occur naturally in mine, we have to buy it from our nursery. This becomes quite costly! I do also try to adopt odd rocks when we go on trips out into the countryside, but at most can only transport a couple at a time and then, they have to be limited to a size I can pick up (or ask my husband to do so for me).
