Brick Pathway Overhead

To get the rest of the bricks for these pathways I had to tear down a chimney. The first three rows of bricks really got me double-thinking how badly I wanted those bricks, but then after that, they came down much easier. I even rather enjoyed myself! My husband was able to help some of the time and my son even helped a little too!

We got enough over the weekend to complete our pathways. And I just found out today that we can have the rest of the brick which is the amount that we have in the pathways over again! Now you can all say - LUCKY!!

Looks fantastic! I can't believe how much you have accomplished in such a short time. I'm so envious.

WOW--beautiful job so far! I'm turning green with envy over here at your brick luck. What are you going to use the rest of the brick for? A patio under that gazebo that I'm drooling over right now?

Awesome, awesome, awesome.

It really makes me wish I lived in a climate where I could grow such a garden.

Mmm. So jealous and happy for you all at the same time. Don't you just love gardening?

OldRoses, you know, neither can I!

BlackSwamp Girl, I love that gazebo too. It was exactly what I had envisioned there. I am going to use the bricks in a tea patio in the front garden.

Sierrabella, my luck couldn't be that good, but I did get the sand at nearly 1/2 price, which still tickled me pink.

Crazygramma, I was due for some good luck.

Shannon, you could always come back. I'm sure we must have some ESL groups you could teach here - somewhere.

Garden Obsession, I finished tearing the rest of the chimney down - in 100 degree heat, no less! The bricks that we don't need for the paths are stacked on the sidewalk awaiting our next project - the tea garden!

Jen, the jealousy makes all the work that much more rewarding ;)
