Backyard pictures and the new purse I am working on

Here are some updated pictures of the back yard, it seems to be coming along nicely. We still have a few spots that needed to be reseeded but they will come in time. Most everything is blooming and looking nice and healthy.

This is the butterfly bush in the planter on the East side of the yard~

These are the Photinias along the back planter ~

This is a new plant that Roger just planted last weekend, it's called purple fountain grass and I really like the way it drops over the fountain~

This picture is of a new purse that I am working on, basically doing the same thing as I did on the last purse following the details of the fabric. I found this fabric at Walmart and thought it was so pretty~



  1. Your yard looks very pretty and I love your fountain. I'm dreaming of adding one of those to my yard one day. I like the new purse too... the embroidery work is so pretty and adds so much detail.

  2. Joann, your backyard is really pretty. That purse will be lovely. Can't wait to see it finished. Winona

  3. You yard looks great! I love the fountain grass. Also wanted to say you son looks so handsome in his uniform. I'm glad you got to spend a little time with him. I understand how you feel, my son was in the Navy for several years and it was very hard, especially when he went to Iraq twice.
