Etch-a-Brick

Six loads of gravel and the rest of the red bricks made it down to the basement patio late this afternoon. I played with the bricks for a bit before it got too dark.

Meh.





















This does nothing for me at all. Erase.





















A little more interesting..... but, meh.





















I have enough circular motifs repeated in the garden.





















I also have the tan bricks, a few mismatched red bricks, whole and shattered ceramic tile and saw cut pieces of colored cement stepping stones. I can always find flat rocks. I'm even open to buying some black polished Mexican beach pebbles.

This is going to take a while. Maybe I need a picture or a little herb infusion.





















Often times, once I get started on these little projects, inspiration will seemingly strike out of the blue. In reality, thoughts about it are tumbling around in my head all day and eventually a good one might fall out.

A little herb infusion passed around amongst friends sometimes leads to brilliant ideas. I know it will come to you. Maybe you could put the brick down as a map of your paths through the garden.

Nice designs.....especially looking down from your cabin. The map of your garden paths suggested by Lisa is a good idea, too.

I'll keep at it. There is no hurry and the bricks move fast in test mode.
