sunday i woke up to a beautiful mother's day card from my sweet son, and sun! though it was a bit windy, we decided to grab bagels and coffee and head out to the beach for a breakfast picnic. we met friends there, and while the kids jumped off a giant pile of seaweed, we adults got to relax and chat.
we headed home to warm up, and lo and behold, the tractor was working in the yard! i couldn't believe my eyes as our uneven yard started to take shape. i love it when a plan comes together.
it's amazing how fast our trusty guy works. we got both the perennial and vegetable areas smoothed out, plus a drainage pipe laid at the end of our driveway with a connector to our well that overflows.

some very satisfying befores and afters:
|veggie area before: note root stock apple, w.t. dirt pile, general malaise|
|veggie area after: note beauty, flatness, and a relaxed feeling|
|veggie side, different before view|
|different after view, can you envision the espaliered pears as a fence?|
|and finally, the aerial views|
|breathtaking, isn't it?|
