Life in the backyard

Yesterday our backyard came to life!  The landscaper came with his men and they worked most of the day putting plants in the ground and preparing the middle for the turf to go in.  It was really exciting to see all the beautiful plants going in.  I snapped some photos this morning of the progress.

Here we have a Meyer Lemon tree, some agapanthas or lilies of the nile, a gardenia bush, and in the front there will be some Gerber Daisies (the nursery ran out yesterday).
This side of the walkway has a lime tree two Dahlias, and 3 gerber daisies.  I love these Dahlias!  I'll have another post about them.
This is from the spascape.  Along the back wall are shrubs, lilies, irises, star jasmine in the corner, red lantana, and more agapanthas.  There will also be a couple rose bushes over in the corner.

I love that so many of my favorite flowers are now in my backyard!  Such fun!!!

So You Think You Can Dance

In honor of the return of my favorite show, I thought I would share a bit of a dance clip with you.

Sabrina and Ann Marie had their dance recitals this week.  Ann Marie's teacher changed a bit of choreography mid year and Annie didn't like the new move.  She decided to do her favorite move instead.  There was no convincing this little one to follow the others.  It was my favorite part of the recital.  I was trying so hard not to just bust out laughing.  Here is the tiny part of the recital.  I may post a bit of Sabrina's favorite move, which she executed with gusto, another day.

And by the way, if anyone wants to come watch SYTYCD with me-- come on over.  Party at my house thirty minutes after each show starts we will be watching it TiVo over here.
