old brick path.

Last summer, we uncovered a portion of an old brick path in front of the house.  Olive Hill in it's hayday was world famous for it's bricks.  There are clay mines all over Carter County that supplied brickyards with raw material to be fired into bricks.  The creeks are full of bricks from this area, that wash up, or are uncovered periodically.  We'll probably continue this path when we get enough bricks put aside, from creek walks etc.  Anyway, We moved some of grandma B's Hostas to either side of the path to make room in the woodland bed for some new plants from Lucasville.  Just one more thing to mow around, but ultimately less to mow!
