I spread two buckets of gravel the day before yesterday to create a foundation for the sidewalk blocks. This was done with a shovel and rake, since the skid steer has too wide of a bucket to be of much assistance. One of the walks curves to meet the other, leaving wider spaces which were then filled with gravel. Later on, I will add coloured rocks or something more creative in those spaces, however for now, the idea was to get the walks completed. Dave and Travis both helped, then helped me plant the 9 rose bushes and shovel some manure I moved in for two new flower beds. Spring will be wonderful when all the plantings begin to blossom. But first, we need to continue to prepare for winter and get through that. Hmmm.
