Something must be done in front of the Mule Barn step. Construction always leaves a mess and this mess is a slight slope so everything wants to wash away during rains.
Bricks are to show the area; grass will grow outside the bricks. The paved drive ends at that little corner showing.
The round thing in the center is an old grinding stone that was used on the farm to sharpen tools. It is out of round and a discard. It will be the pivot for where the path makes a right angle to go over to the greenhouse.
I've been looking at pictures of the path made of bits and pieces and scraps in the Organic Mechanics' Garden and similar paths. I have broken bricks galore, pieces of stone, metal machine parts, pieces of big and small ceramic pots, plate pieces and so many ideas my head is bizzy.
I welcome all suggestions that are not so ambitious an old woman can't do them. There is already some digging to be done because of the concrete scrap from the building.
I decided that probably all I will plant will be white lantana, enough to cover the area when it grows, and just put pine straw there in winter.
The little bright round spot at the corner of the building was dust on my camera lens. Up close it looks like an amoeba.
