The Front Flowerbed

It took three trips to Home Depot, but I finally picked up the blocks to line my front flowerbed yesterday ... something I have been intending to do since I planted it in 2016. The blocks looked much more marbled and tan at the store. When I got them home, they looked like plain concrete, and they really clashed with the house.

I didn't like them at all, but three more trips to Home Depot to return them ... and another three trips to get different ones didn't appeal to me at all. I figured I'd buy some concrete stain in a more appropriate color.

Then I noticed they were the color I thought they were when I got them wet ...

Today, I made another trip to Home Depot to get some concrete stain. However, I was a product that made them look wet, and it was about half the cost of the stain. You can really see the difference it makes in this picture ...

As the product dries, it does lighten a bit, but I've got enough to put another coat on them and darken them a bit more. Still, it looks so much better.

Even if you don't live in the Evansville area, please keep an eye out for this car. It was traveling South on I-69. It could have been coming from and going to anywhere. The Sheriff's office will follow up any ANY lead.
