I finished the wall about a month ago; here are some photos at long last!
First, from the front right:
Note how wonderfully level the walls are!
All of the sod is up, but I haven't added any new gravel yet. I'll add some next month, after the stuff already there has a chance to settle down.
Also, some flower pics. This year, I did some succession planting in the front--cosmos sowed among the lilies, to bloom late in the summer, after the lilies had died. Stunning success!
I'll have to get a nice photo of my biceps too. Those stones were heavy!
