15 images showing all 1500 square feet (the main, 2 year old back garden). If you want to see what this all looked like 3 months ago, click here--it's pretty amazing. A person can forget how far things come, especially as many plants begin to fall off in the heat of summer and depression sinks in (until the asters and eupatorium restore one's faith).

Looking in from the lawn I'd love to not have, but that does present a certain kind of je ne sais quoi counter balance to the garden. I think it's like yin and yang. A needed place to rest your eye. A place where negative space can exist. A place for a swimming pool (100 next two days).
