First off, Diana is in Berlin right now. She got a tour of Lueneburg on Sunday, then on Monday the American students headed back to the train for a 3-day visit to Berlin. After THAT, she stays with her host family until she heads home. She's really enjoying herself! Check her Host Mom's blog for photos! ---------->
Sometime over the Winter, a tree in our backyard fell. I didn't even realize it (it's from the way back part of the yard that's very wild), but Lee did. It was already dead from some little critters that have eating away on it. Lee had Trevor cut the tree in to chunks & pieces. They got loaded into a wheel barrow and were just out there in the yard.
I had been thinking about a fire pit, like to use for roasting marshmallows & possibly cooking some salmon - or even having a place to cook burgers for our meat-eating friends! I gave Lee the idea I was thinking of, and he did it this weekend.
First he excavated a good-size hole in the grass where we wanted the pit to be. Then he made it level again by putting in river rock & pea gravel. Then the upper layer is sand. He stacked the retaining wall blocks - very nice & level!
Thanks Lee! It looks great!
