I really like this patchwork brick patio. and it might even be cheaper as you could buy end of line materials and it would not matter if you didn't have a lot of it as you are going to use so many different ones.. perfect ground for patio
the line of dark rocks creates a very serene gravel garden/dry creek...I am going to be putting in a dry creek bed in my backyard at the end off my down spout where all of the mulch always washes away..I already have all of the rock to put in place.
Stamped 365 file cards with the dates Jan. 1 ~ Dec. 31. at the end of the each day jot on one line what happened that day. Do this every day and your memories will be recorded. Then next January 1st and for all the days after write what you did on line two. As the years go by you will have a little reminder of what you did "last" year and the years before. If you keep it going you will have a beautiful memory basket to pass down.
