I'm at an airport motel outside Kansas City right now, getting ready to leave for Japan verrrrrrry early in the morning. More on that as it happens! But one of several things making the past few days wilder than usual was that the workmen were all over my place, finishing up Stage Whatever-This-Is of the ongoing landscaping project. Et voila, a nice little patio, in perfect sync with my low-slung 1950s limestone ranch:

I'll work on dressing it up a bit after I get home, but for now it's wonderful to see something other than bare dirt back of the garage.

The stone is fabulous--it goes so well with the limestone that the house is made of. It was fascinating to watch Gil, the stone guy, laying the patio, choosing just the right pieces to fill in the space.

There's one goofy decorative stepping stone in there, a present from one of my Colorado friends when Dad died; Rob the landscaper shuddered a little bit when I asked him to find a place for it, but in the end it turned out to have a real use (marking a valve box).
