Eye Candy

This post has nothing to do with food, except that now our front yard is a feast for the eyes!! Tom came today to build a flower bed. I would like to say that I was a big help, but today I was just the color commentary. That man is a machine! By the time I planted one thing, Tom had planted at least three. Anyway, the yard looks too amazing not to share. A big THANK YOU to Tom for all his hard work and wonderful company.

A path for the mailman. And, let’s face it, for me when I go to Alycia’s house!

There used to be two huge, ugly shrubs and some strange flowering plant that always looked almost dead in this space. Now, there are lots of beautiful plants, with spots for more tall grass and flowers next year!

A beautiful butterfly who found a nice place to eat. I guess this post was about food after all!

    Ahhhhh….it looks beautiful! I wish I was there with you two! Grading almost done. I love the butterfly on the butterfly bush. What a cute end to the post.

    That looks beautiful! I honestly cannot believe that Tom got that done in one day! I would say it’s unbelievable, but we witnessed Tom and Jeff building a patio and fire pit in a day and a half. And designing it by themselves!

    Elyse, the picture with the butterfly is beautiful! The hardest part of this project is knowing that you’ll have to wait until next year to enjoy most of the blooms. But I think it should be beautiful – and relatively care free too with so many perennials! Thanks for a fun day.
