  7. You are a genius, Kathy! Look at what you made for next to nothing! It really turned out great, didn't it. I'm sure you must have been pleased. You be sure and let me know when you mosaic the top. Your primroses are the pretties shade of yellow. Just gorgeous. Great post! Thank you for linking up!

  8. Thank you! I did use premix concrete, and it had a lot of aggregate so I feel fortunate that the base turned out so well.

    Sorry about appearing to be neglectful, and THANK YOU!
