THE Plan

You'll probably have to click on that sucker to actually see anything. That was one monstrous file. I deserve a gold star for editing, converting to jpg, and resizing that thing just for your viewing pleasure. I'm sorry I didn't have a electronic copy of the color version. It's pretty, but you'll cope in black and white.

Do you like how I'm sitting around reading on a lounge chair? I'm holding my sister to the fact that finishing our yard means that will happen. And apparently nothing will change for M, because he will still forget to change out of a shirt and tie before he does something dirty like grill in the backyard.

We actually took some baby steps toward this suburban utopia. While my sister and her husband were here, we painted the basic outlines to get a feel for everything:

Also, we bought one tree (On sale because it was a "living Christmas tree" and Christmas was over! They even threw in a free poinsettia!). One microscopic little tree. We planted it along the back fence. But at least we did SOMETHING!

Grow tree, GROW!!!

I love landscaping plans!

Please consider installing a koi pond so I can live vicariously through you. Thanks.

Now you can have people refer to my post if you want them to see a color version.
