i'm filling the areas in with potting soil/garden soil a little at a time, as i add things to it. and yes, those blocks have been singed, they were in the fire.

I've never thought about doing that. It's a great idea. Give some dimension to a flat area.

i should plant annuals, but i'm not really good at that. in the "established" part of the bulb bed is amaryllis and hurricane lilies. i'm hope they bloom this year. on the other side of the walkway is iris and hurricane lilies.
