Leaves falling all around...

And I still miss this lovely tree.  As some of you may recall, last year the difficult decision to remove our "anniversary tree" was made.  That decision was certainly not easy, but for a number of reasons, just had to be done.

Resulting in no tree and a bare front yard.

With a hot and dry summer, the front became nothing more than an eye sore.  Do you know how difficult it is to pull into your garage with your eyes shut?!  Inspiration, guidance and woman power begets a new front garden.

It isn't easy landscaping an incline, especially one with tree roots.  However, it can be done.

The neighbors drive by, stop and say, "Looks good", "Different", "Lots of work"....Really, what can they say?  I just don't think they understand...no one does much to their yards around here.  Wonder what's said about the purple table setting in the midst of all??!!  

Frost is coming soon and one more plant to get in the ground (providing no more jump into my cart) so that may be it until next spring.  Guess I can dream and plan and maybe even think how I will work with my fanny not in the air...that so bothers the guy around here.

Any suggestions?
