Tah dah!

Building this tiny little wall (a measly 50 linear feet) has taken so long I can't even remember when the whole process started. Alas, the bricks are done. There is still much to be done, so this isn't a true before-and-after. I still have to build ANOTHER one and build the fence. Hopefully I've learned enough from the first raised bed to make the next one go faster. Anyhow, here's how it looked before:

And here is the much-anticipated wall in all her glory:

Yeah, pretty unimpressive for as long as it took me. I made lots of mistakes (like deciding to build this thing in the first place), but let's just call it charm, shall we?

So far, so good. Wish I were there to help, now that would make it go faster, for sure. Can't wait to see the finished project.

And the rose is still in bloom on the side yard. How beautiful! Any plans on moving the 100 year old bush to another area once the walls are finished? MOM
