  2. Hi Jo! How lucky your loved one is to have so much help! Her home is gorgeous and all of the landscaping looks so pretty! I'm sure that took some time to do! Make sure you go back and take a picture when it all starts to fill in.

  5. Girlfriend I know the kind of tired of which you speak! We have done our own landscaping in both the homes we have owned. It's hard work but very rewarding, too.

    I wish we had wonderful helpers like you! The home and landscaping is beautiful!

    Thanks for linking up!
