Last year I did some posts on all the renovations at Jan and Bob's house in McKinney, Texas.  This time I have photos of their finished landscaping project.  I'm sure when spring blooms in McKinney, these shrubs and trees are going to fill out beautifully and it will look like a true Eden!

So, here's a walk through the garden with their dog, Molly!
I could hear this fountain bubbling away at night through the open window.  Beautiful!
This is the entry to the breakfast room.
 A view from the front patio.
Coming from Wisconsin in January, the green grass sure looked good.
 Molly loves the yard!  She wanders around all day - always with some little stuffed animal or toy hanging from her mouth. 
 The last photo is a whimsical one.  Tigger, the family cat, is a little camera shy - but how many cats do you know who have their owners build them a warm little cave to retreat to after their night-time wanderings?  And if you look at the bottom of the quilt, you can see a cord coming out of the cave - that's right - this little nest even has a heating pad!!!  
I'm not the only one who is pampered at the Barstads!
