Can't wait to see the pics. We just had 23 Ton of flagstone delivered, arranged our own delivery with the quarry owners and paid 1/2 of cost locally. I spend my mornings digging out sod, need to see your pics so I can get some inspiration to continue projects.

Ian, congratulations on that superior load of potatoes! They are drop-dead gorgeous. We've never met a rock we didn't like. ;-)

Good luck with getting your project done before the snow flies, time grows short up here too. Karen
