"Customer" Appreciation Day

Last week, Denise and I made some bouquets for people who have helped us out in these last couple of months.  It's a wonderful feeling to say THANK YOU with flowers.  Thank you to my thesis director, Carolyn Hembree, thank you to Amelia for lending us her car, thank you to Katrina for hosting Flower Fit, thank you to Parkway Partners for finding us more land. We're crazy grateful and flower-flush, so y'all get ready for our next "Customer" Appreciation Day.

Work Day to End the Tyranny of All Weeds!!

Last weekend, we tackled the beast that is the back half of our special, very weird, very urban lot.  Might I direct you to the moldy "chicken coop" in the background.  We're taking that down next.

The beginning of the end!

Callie is very, very strong.

After the initial weed removal, the detail job.

Hey!  Whitney brought a friend.

John Gerken has never read a blog, let alone been featured in a blog before.

You can see the fence!!!  Lot officially cleared.  Now to get the rest of those snapdragons in!
Man-bunnies watch us while we work.
