So a lot of you know I'm a landscaper and have asked to see some of my projects. I know I'm probably going to get in trouble for posting this, but I'm not selling anything just showing off what someone with UC and a lot of Remicade can do.
Don't pay much attention to the front page cause it's not quite done, but the completed projects page has some fun pictures of a few of the projects I've done over the last year.
It's fancyplantsgardens.com

** James, just tried to make it an active link...not sure if it worked! :-)

I second what emily wrote! I can imagine how much thought, time and effort go into projects like that...

The overall sense of serenity and harmony with the environment, landscapes were honestly, quite tranquil.
I'd give anything to sit on that bench in woodinville and enjoy the calming greenery and sunshine....ahhhh.

kudos and good luck!

James, I think we know you better then that! We know you wouldn't purposely try to sell things. These pics are amazing. I've been sort of keeping up with the pics on your Myspace so some of those I have seen already. But very nice work and of course you should be proud of yourself!! :)

Great stuff James...just wondering if all that brown stuff is all manure or does it consist of homo sapien contributions as well.
