The Good, the Bad and the Pretty

The good news is that we are undertaking an exciting renovation chez us.  We are expanding our living room into the dining room and moving the dining room into a different area of the living room. The only reason we haven't done this already is that pesky wall you see below.  So in the midst of other, smaller renovation plans, it was decided that the wall has to go.  The bad news is that it looks like this right now:

The living room with a hole and all of our furniture.  Recently the room got a lot emptier when half of our furniture, which was broken, went into the dumpster. 

It's even better behind the tarp! 

The pile of renovation debris. 

While we were at it, we did some demo in the basement too.  If you look closely at the bottom of the picture  that's a metal retaining wall that no longer retains.

The pretty of course, is in the garden.  The flowers and veggies are doing great.  Only a few ripe tomatoes so far, but pretty soon we'll have bushels.

My cosmos are going awesome this year.  The color selection I got is great. 

Wild Catch-Fly (I think) in the back yard.

Alyssum loves my backyard.  I'll have to remember that when planting next year.

The Bachelor Buttons are still going strong.  The are attracting loads of little yellow birds- American Goldfinches according to my mom.
