In The Garden

A beautful pot, which you can't see for all the plants!
There was a small swimming pool in the back yard when C and MA bought the house.  The promptly removed it.  Their daughter, who is a landscape architect, designed and built this garden for them.  What a wonderful gift!
The Fountain.  Toby likes to drink from the basin.

Raised beds for vegetables.

Yummy artichoke.  We had it for lunch.

Blooms everywhere.

The garden is a beautiful place, surrounded by high walls.  There is a huge Catalpa tree which is covered in white blooms, except for the ones constantly dropping in the garden.  I sweep them up every day, but it still looks like snow on the ground the next morning.
