Unable to decide which photo I like best. :) The bricks in the foreground roundabout are recycled bricks that we found throughout the yard (some of them with convict markings)

Those bricks were a marvellous find - how exciting to find the convict markings.

Great looking spot, Patricia!

Well, I'll certainly thank the man above for rain where it's needed. (Y) But... I do think that you've got a knack for making your garden look perfect, Patricia. Me? I'd have forgotten to trim half of something as I'd been distracted by thinking that the salvia desperately needed deadheading, which I would have got part-way through before... :roll:
