House Renovation: Granite Step & Plants in!

I hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend. We worked on our gardens a bit. Greg finally got the granite step in. This time it's not photoshopped. The step fits perfectly. I can't believe we actually did it. The rock was a monster. In the second image our hydrangeas starting to sprout. We planted the hydrangeas and put in the granite pavers last fall.

My mom came down over the weekend and brought a few plants from her garden. I need a few more but we are off to a good start. I kinda wish I could snap my fingers and everything would be in bloom. Patience, katy. I need a flowering bush for the end of the garden. I've thought about lilacs, butterfly bushes, and lace cap hydrangeas. I have to keep looking around.

  1. It's looking great, Katy! That step really *is* the perfect size and shape. I'm excited -- for some reason, I feel a lot of satisfaction each time you post your progress for us. I know, I'm not doing anything over here except "watching" via blog posts, but still, I'm eager!
