David's dad came over to help him with the heavy work and to measure out the pathway. They hauled a lot of stone and bought a lot of gardening tools.
Julie and David set out the stones (made out of egg cartons) to make sure they fit before they put them in permanently.
Christopher and Goldie check out the finished pathway.
David lays out the garden shape and lines them with stones. Christopher brings Julie her garden gloves while Jennifer plays with her birdhouses.
Next, Julie and David pick out the flowers they want in the garden. I had never made flowers before so this was a project all of its own. There were gladiolas, dahlias, sunflowers, black eyed susans, daisies and painted daisies as well as assorted bushes.
David plants the first bush and Julie makes sure it has lots of water. Goldie wonders if there is a bone buried there.
The right garden and a bird is already trying out the birdbath while a little rabbit keeps watch.
The family look over the left garden and are very pleased with the results. David promised Julie that she could get new furniture for the gazebo now.
The gazebo furniture was made from a Joanne Swanson tutorial. It is made from matboard covered with aida cloth.
Julie sets up the gazebo and invites her best friend and neighbour over for afternoon tea.
