You must be feeling exhausted.What a lot of hard work, but a great achievement. Perhaps you can post some more pics to show how your project develops later.

Hi Grenville il keep it up dated as im now wanting some window boxes so i can plant more of those lovely Pansies in them 2 match the Flower Beds :)

Well that looks like some good work, you must feel a sense of achievement. I noticed today in homebase what lovely varieties of pansies there are about, so many lovely colours and shapes and sizes. They are a good hardy plant. Love the blues/purle shades.

Great makeover Jacque and done how I like it too (or should I say as hubby does) very looks fab!

I like the style and colour, after long thought lol I couldn't decide where I prefered the pansies, thats because I like them in both places :) I love what you have done with the stepping stones and the pansies, can't wait to see your next step :)
