Landscaping 101

Lucy's summer project was to clear out the overgrown bushes behind the pool in an attempt to make the pathway more accessible and the back lawn more unified. Sounds easy, right? Well the project was completed a couple of weeks ago, after many evenings spent sawing, digging, cutting, raking, planting... And now we have a nice place to sit by the pool and hopefully a less attractive place for snakes to live (they were creeping me out...)

A very big thanks to Estelle who helped to paint the chairs and table. She is as talented with a big awkward canvas as she is in her sketchbook.

Sit back and relax!

Not the same angle, but you get the idea...

Congratulations! That looks like a lot of work, and the fact that you were able to convince others to help is a complement to your organizational skills. If Estelle would like a painting contract I believe we have some window sills that would benefit from a young, steady hand.

Félicitations Lucy et ton aide. C'est vrai que c'est plus beau comme ça.
