Etch-a-Brick Two

Over there on the Facebook, which is currently broken for me again, folks have been expressing some preferences in brick works.





















I said I would revisit the linear layout with some adjustments. Meh.





















It still doesn't do much for me.





















It's dull. I need pizzazz.





















I do want to revisit the brick speckles. That will have to wait till after Turkey Day.





















This idea entered my head last night. I think it was planted over there on the FB which isn't working for me at the moment.





















It's ok, but it is still lacking something.





















It needs more bricks to encompass the entire patio and swirl right off of it.





















I don't want to buy more bricks if at all possible. I'm not sure I want to repeat the design of Creation either.





















Now this has promise.





















It's got swirl and linear. I could check out adding another arm to the north entry with the tan bricks.





















The above view is important too. I'll keep playing. There is no hurry.

Pics 10, 11, and 12 appeal to my eye.....graceful but with direction. Have you asked Collar for his opinion?

I wanted to tell you how delighted I was to happen upon your place during a recent visit near Clyde. I am from the Atlanta area and have been checking out your blog regularly for about a year. My family has a place near Maggie Valley that we visit in the summer and fall. It had rained most of that weekend that we were there and when the sun finally popped out we went out for a drive to see the fall colors. I recognized your cabin and then saw the bicycle! I love seeing your pictures and the progress that you make in your garden is inspiring.

Dana I think Miss Collar's only preference is will it be comfortable to lay on.

Thanks for the kind words Teresa. My little house is very recognizable from the scenic byway once the leaves start to fall. I get impatient at the slow pace of the garden at times, but progress is inevitable.

I think your Etchings are about to culminate in a good pattern.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Confused now. Happy Thanksgiving.

I love the circular one but I think the red brick might be distracting.
