WOW! I loved tuning in to Bettermost today and seeing the new banner. Beautiful! Can we get a panoramic view of the garden? It must be a playground for the senses around there!

You won't believe this, but that's exactly what I've been doing while you posted this! A couple a months ago I took 4 shots of the front yard...

http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,8507.458.html

and just now I've taken the same shots (hey there ain't no new flowers so I gotta post sumthin, right?)

Anyways, I still have to download em on the computer, re-size em, photobucket em then I'll post one an hour - how does that sound?

LOL--I just returned to modify and saw your new post. I went back to page 12 and when I got to page 15, I saw that you had already posted a panorama on June 8. But--today it will have changed in some ways, so I will look forward to seeing it. Thanks! (I have just a few flowers and I like to look at them every day--and I often drive around my little town just to look at my neighbor's flowers. Your neighbors must love coming by your house!)

first a 4 - from my stoop looking straight down onto the front yard


Grass is looking a little worn down. I don't take care of the grass, except to remove weeds, I water the flowers only.

You'll also note, if you compare these pics to the ones I took May 4th, that the neighbour's house across the street has gone throught a face lift.
