I almost completely forgot about the first installment of Metamorphosis Monday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
My 90-year old mother has been in the hospital since Thursday night, when I took her to the hoapital emergency room. We had been there Wednesday morning, but had returned home by mid-afternoon. So I am a bit out of touch with my blogging activities.
I will just do a quick post about the front steps as I found them in 1992 when I bought my house. The house had been built in 1988 so it was four years when I moved in.
The lower front steps consisted of railroad ties in terra cotta red, with gravel and terra cotta stepping stones for the lower landing. The wood was quite rotted so I had to replace them.
In 1994 I hired a mason who designed a curved lower stair.
After all this time I still need to add railings to aid in going up and down when it is wet or slippery.
