A Look at Tom's Work in the Garden

Day Lily
Tom practically lives for gardening and is a very meticulous landscaper. He loveseverything in order, trimmed, neat and clean (it's the Mr. Monk-like quality that keeps the house looking great inside and out). He spends every weekend planting, trimming, fixing, and making sure that all the plants around the house are looking their best. Since he puts so much hard work into it, I thought I'd highlight some of the great flowers we have sprinkled around the yard.  
- I (Rob) have the touch of death with plants, so I try to keep away from them... although whenever something appears to be dying, I'll take it under my wing and have been pretty successful at nursing a plant or two back to health. Enjoy these pics!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
