Meadow Steps

Today,
on this last warm day of April,
I worked with
Lynnette and Michelle,
of Belle Feuille Garden Design
to set the steps and walkway for our front meadow...

Here are the steps...

and here we dig out the walkway...

and then bring in
wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of sand...

Lynnette says she's found her new calling in life,
besides being a superb gardener and designer,
manning the roller
makes her light up like a Christmas tree...

From the inner garden looking out...

This is going to be so fun to watch transform...

Lynnette and me~Lea,
pause for a photo shoot by Michelle...

And then we all took a pause for lunch...

I wish I had taken a picture...

Lynnette created a gourmet lunch
of hot roasted red peppers in olive oil
with warm goat cheese,
and fresh greens in a vinaigrette from Michelle's garden
all tucked into toasted pita bread...

Do you know any gardeners
who also provide gourmet lunches at their work site???

And then,
towards the end of the day,
we catch Michelle peaking out from under
the fragrant Cecil Bruener rose cascade...

And Michelle and Lynnette
lay the beginning stones of the walkway...

I so love digging in the dirt...

It must be my farmer's daughter's roots,
dancing in the soil...

And then to get to do so
with two of your best girlfriends...
that is a goode, goode life...
