Not quite an "after" picture yet but we're making progress. The stone walkway is in...
A few plants have been added. And a bench.
I bought the bench for half price at a fancy garden center north of Indianapolis years ago and have been lugging it around ever since. It's been used on the porch of every apartment I've lived in that had a porch. It was in storage for a while. And I think I may have used it as a couch (a very hard one) at one point. It's been in several locations since we bought this house but never one where it "fit" so perfectly.
Next up is a trip to the English garden center in a town nearby. We still have lots of holes to fill!
