Here's what Bob's been doing!

Bob loves working on our yard and he seems to always have some project going.  When he's not working on something, he has some plans going in his head!
I really like his latest additions.

We had a trellis in the corner of our back yard, but it was black and didn't show up well against the trees.  Also, the clematis on it was getting quite big, so he built this arbor around it.  It shows up so much more, and gives more room for the clematis to grow.


Here's a closer shot.  The light green is the clematis growing, and it will soon have white flowers on it.

 His next project was this fountain.


 It's not turned on in this photo, but it's a bubbler fountain, the water just bubbles over the top, and goes back to the basin.


 Here's a close up of it working.


It's called a 4 seasons fountain.  There are 4 different faces on it, representing the 4 seasons.


Here's a view from the bench, looking out over the backyard.

I think I'm pretty lucky, and he's pretty talented!

Two very nice additions to your yard! I love them both! The sound of water is so nice. Our fountain bit the dust last year and I've been missing it!

I can tell from your pictures that you have a great backyard. I know that it is even more beautiful in person. How nice to have so much space - it's like you have your very own park!

That fountain will be so relaxing as you can hear the soft gurgling as you sit on the park bench!!! I'm totally impressed with his artful ability to have it all look so natural in the beauty of the park/back yard!!!!

That Bob guy who lives with you is wonderfully talented. I like the trellis, the bubbly fountain, and the manicured lawn under the shade trees. Bob is a keeper, for sure!
