thanks to the visionary talents of Mark A. James, landscaper extraordinaire. Jeff is really great at MOWING our yard... I mean really...he does angled lines and everything... but he'll be the first to admit that we both know nothing about plants.
My brother in law, former neighborhood yard of the month winner, is naturally talented and comes from a long line of green thumbs and was so nice and volunteered his Saturday to not only draw a plan and tell us which plants to get... but also brought his talent, tools, and yard shoes to do the manual labor aspect, too. I probably would have faked an injury like I used to do on running day in middle school p.e.... which just shows Mark's a bigger person than me.
We've been spending a lot of time in out there since the installation of Lily's swing and favorite thing in the world. Now, I LOVE sitting on our back porch and feeling a since of completeness with our two new flower beds and several areas around the yard that will (with growth time) give some definition to our FENCELESS yard. (Note: Jeff HATES that every home in Texas has a fence... thus we are the ONE house that doesn't)
