Bamboo . . .

Just like our friends Kim and Becca at Rain Lily Design (linked under "cool stuff" on the sidebar) said, the third year is the charm for bamboo - it started growing sideways and this year, all of the sudden, it goes vertical - YEAH!

Just for kicks, here's a shot from 2008

Plantings around the pool are really coming iin nicely as well.

Oh yeah, and finally got the remaining solar screen (the ones 10 feet off the ground) and ceiling fan installed on the porch too.

Wildflowers . . .

The wildflowers have been beautiful this season, albeit later than last year. Unfortunately the weeds have been pretty healthy too!! Here are a few pics from the richest area of our back yard.

A lovely, hand picked Mother's Day Bouquet from the yard . . .
