My pleasure to introduce you...

Everyone, this is my little piece of paradise. I never, ever, ever--not in a million years--thought I would love a little piece of land so much. See that hammock? Ahhh...there will be MANY nights spent snuggling, relaxing, reading, sipping, day dreaming in those braided ropes. See that little house? That's M's special place. She loves ringing the door bell and rushing inside when the voice calls out "hello?" She laughs! Oh, how she laughs. She's big enough now that she can sit herself in the swing (next to the red slide). She likes to take a book outside and sit in the swing to read.

When you enter this play area from the driveway, H has planted a crepe myrtle ( sp?) on each side with yellow lantana around the base. There are pits (not sure the entire name...that's just what we call them) around the border with some type of evergreen (not sure of the name right now...end of school year brain) on the road side. Eventually the pits will create a nice tall border and the evergreens will help create a sound absorber for the road noise. So far, the road noise hasn't been too bad. I'm going to start getting M some touchable and feelable plants for the area that she can rub and sniff whenever we're out there.
If you ever need us and we're not answering the phones, just swing on by. There is a 10 out of 10 chance that we're hanging out together in our little piece of paradise.
