Lucky on the lake

Pittsburg, Tx (8)

My wife Kay and I relocated here when we retired five years ago. We have been working renovating the inside and the outside ever since. The front yard received a minor transition of adding several beds around the pecan trees and in front of the walkway. The backyard has been almost completely renovated from a multi-level deck, covered porch and new shed with Kay's planting porch in the upper back yard, to a multi-level shade garden on a sloped hill side bordered on one side by a water feature over 100 feet long with five falls, new retaining wall with boardwalk on the lake frontage bordered in the yard by terraced beds with a multitude of plants, and fire pit with stone benches. And every board, stone, shovel of dirt, and plant placed by Kay and I alone.
