This has small tear drop type leaves and grows pretty pink flowers that turns brown and fall off.
A few years ago, I began a garden partly due to boredom and the other because I loved looking at the gardens in Savannah, Ga. Anyhow, I just planted all types of flowers and shrubs and didn't document them so I never knew what was growing in my gardens when asked. Now, I take pictures of them and document their names. This is the final one in my garden that doesn't have a name. Could you please help me identify it? Thank you:-D

Buford holly? I have boxwood and it has never bloomed.
This room was painted for Atlanta designer Terri Kemp of Terri Kemp Interiors in Raleigh, N.C. I thought a giant guitar would be fun on the wall and would be something that would be relevant for years.
I've been doing a bunch of work for a client up in Wyoming these last couple of weeks. Yesterday when chatting with the clients They mentioned something about a neighbors fence and how
part a shed was modified to do this...I was a bit surprised to hear this. Well the photo does not lie...the corner of the garden shed was cut away to install a fence post. This has got to be the goofiest thing I have seen in a while. What was just as goofy was the neighbor behind this one.
In this second yard the fence extends into the garage...not to the garage but INSIDE the garage. This renders the garage door completely useless. So the two most wacky fence projects I have ever seen are right next door to each other. It almost has me wondering if there is some type of "Bermuda Triangle" of poor fence design there.

Now as for the shed the bottom could have been rotted out and this was their solution, but the
As I understand it, they took their queen with them and hunkered down in our tree for the night.
A "beeman" was called and he dressed all in white, evidently white doesn't upset the bees. Very gently he moved the majority of them into a box he brought, and said by morning every bee would be in there. And he was right except for maybe 2 lost souls. He took the box and away they went to a new home. He said there were probably 30, 000 bees in this swarm, when they get too numerous, they split, and swarm elsewhere.The original swarm will have 3 or so new queens "born? and the first born will eliminate the others. The tree was humming, very exciting but weird, I have never seen anything like this. Awesome. We stood out there a long time watching and they never bothered us.
Actually this was about 4-5 years ago, I was looking for some "good" pictures of my garden and ran across this! So I am sharing.
We helped our homeowner remodel his kitchen with IKEA cabinets in order to give them a mid century modern feel to their mid century ranch home. They loved it. What do you think?

I don't really like the white shiney cabinets, but I do happen to like IKEA. I have a solid
wood coffee table and a solid wood, very sturdy dining table that I am using as a desk. My cabinets are white, but with brass pulls and one wall is actually a dark blue which reflects the light and a wicker hanging lamp that I found at a yard sale painted the same blue, with blue & white tiles behind the stove and sink. It is amazing what a little color can do.
