We have a lot of friends who have green thumbs. I'm always impressed with a green thumb, because I'm a one man wrecking crew when it comes to anything with leaves.
I must admit, I don't like getting my hands dirty. I don't like the feel of grass. Yes, I'm a freak. So, I really respect people who get in their yard, dig holes, plant things, grow things, harvest things, and keep their yards so pretty.
We spent time yesterday with some of our green thumbed friends. Not only is their yard pretty, but they are constantly doing things and on the go. Yesterday, they put together a new fire pit so we could have the first fire of the night. (Steven is the helper elf.)
Chairs had to be scrubbed.
Look at the gorgeous colors in these flowers. (note: all pretty pictures are taken by Steven. The grainy icky ones are mine)

I may not be able to grow them, but I sure do enjoy them.
I also enjoy this Pumpkin Ale. You can really taste the pumpkin spice.

How gorgeous is this? It's an outdoor shower; Jodi took her showers here all summer.
It was a nice afternoon, filled with all sorts of good beer, pretty flowers and happy people. And I didn't have to get my hands dirty. Perfection!
