the ins and outs

we said goodbye to our lawn this week - raccoons, moles, our sweet dog, and now the drought made it impossible to keep.  in its place we now have a small bluestone courtyard in an ashlar pattern and are anxiously awaiting lovely elfin thyme to fill in all the spaces between the stones, ah patience. happy weekend.
