The yard is a construction zone!
This is the deck in progress-Sean has basically doubled the area of the existing deck (the one that is attached to the house and accessible out the family room sliding door). This way, we can get changed into our suits and then hop right out to the pool. The location of the stairs to the yard has been changed, and poor Bear is having such a problem with the change. It's like he knows where they SHOULD be, and they aren't there anymore, and it just isn't right. So he stands there with his head cocked to one side,willing the stairs to go back to the right spot!
I have noticed lots of knitters also like to garden-I am just learning (as in my thumb is brown with some green spots). But I am quite pleased with my "Love Lies Bleeding" (or Amaranthus-caudatus) See it here- http://www.rainyside.com/features/plant_gallery/annuals/Amaranthus_caudatus.html#amar
My apologies for the "iffy" picture-the chenille type flowers are really a bright pink, and the stems and veins of the leaves are the same colour. Really an amazing plant. The name of it was what really caught my eye!
