leaves in concrete

Thursday, the contractor had told me that they were pouring the concrete walk around the new restroom at Arroyo Road the next morning, and that night, I kept seeing in my mind’s eye, footprints, animal tracks and leaves embedded in concrete.  I knew then, it was meant to be. In the morning, I asked the contractor if he would mind if we added some leaves to his finish, like, you know, from the sycamores and walnuts all around us, into the surface … like exposed aggregate. Like a little artsy touch, to have some fun.  Lucky for me, the contractor was more than happy to oblige, and in fact, I think he really got into leafing up the concrete finish!

The final finish!
