    Major thanks due to my sister Alison and her gardening expert friend Sue for doing much of the design and planting work. I could not have done this without their support and encouragement.

    Looks much better and I especially like the rockery, fence treatments and pavers. You need some waterfalls in there. Is that grass in the middle of the yard?

    In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    Much improved indeed. What a lot of work and so beautiful. I'm not sure what you call that red leafed plant in the bottom pic. The common non-botanical name here is coral bells, at least in the St Louis area. About 10 years ago I had planted some in a huge concrete planter that was too heavy to move here. Although it's technically an annual in the midwest that supposedly will never over winteer successfully, they were still going strong after 10 years in that large pot. I hope they spring up eternally for you to help you remember the beautiful time creating that lovely garden with your sis and her friend. They are quite the gardeners.

    It looks like you have strawberry plants in the herb section. Is another one of those herbs basil? That should make a good tasting pasta dish.

    I love it! That looks so inviting. I agree with lacars, on adding
    a small waterfall. Maybe have it falling into a little fish pond
    at the bottom. The before and after pictures are amazing. All
    it takes is a little elbow grease. :)

    No wonder your never here, you're busy planting posey's!
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
