I had bulldozers in my backyard today! The rain was lovely timing - my yard now resembles a mud pit but I'm not complaining because I keep looking at my inspirational pics and thinking about how great it will be when it is finished. Part of my fence will be painted black lattice such as this courtyard I found while (once again) looking on realestate.com. I think its simply gorgeous and such a great backdrop to a small formal garden. I wish I could rip out the brickwork around my pool and put in these gorgeous flagstones but not in this lifetime - oh well!
