Drowning my sorrows in the garden.

There was not going to be any gardening at the DragonFly garden this weekend. It was supposed to be American football all weekend all the time. Our three local teams, the Miami Hurricanes, FIU Golden Panthers, and the Miami Dolphins were playing Saturday and Sunday. All three laid a homogonous egg… they lost big time.
Today I had the day off from work, so it was a good time to go into the garden and forget about our disastrous football weekend.

While pressure cleaning the back patio I decided to make some changes to the back part of the garden.

Before, we used to keep our garbage cans there.

With the increase number of containers in my garden, I needed a place to display some of them. All I needed to do was buy a couple of bags of gravel; I had the extra garden blocks for the border and Voila!!! a new garden bed.

Rusty, Come on now. This looks way more fun than boring football. LOL I love your use of hardscape and your new gravel border is fabulous. More photos please.
