I don't think I have ever shown our patio to you.
Well, I have a good reason.
It was made with old concrete blocks and it always 
looked dirty and just really yucky as you can see in this picture.
And I have always hated how the concrete goes right up to the foundation
of the house so we couldn't plant anything around it.

I am so happy to say that it is going bye, bye and
being replaced with some new pavers.
Hubby enlisted the help of our son.
Believe me, he wasn't smiling for long.

It's very hard work.
They are using flagstone that was already on our
property when we moved here along the edge of the patio.

This is how it looks so far.

A little ways to go yet.

The leaves are falling faster than hubby can get the pavers laid.
It will be so fun next spring to have a pretty patio ~ can't wait!

Thank you so much for stopping by ~ I truly appreciate all of your visits!
I hope you have a great weekend!
