Ryan was working in the [neighbor's!] yard last night.  I always love to be out there with him.  I brought the camera and walked around [our] yard to see what was interesting.  I thought the up close and personal shots were much more fascinating.  I'll give you $50 if you can guess what everything is before you scroll down to the next photo.  Okay, not really.  [I get it from my dad who would say, as we sat down to dinner, "I'll give anyone with their napkins on their lap a dollar!"  Once, I left my napkin on the table and put one in my lap.  So smart.]  But if you do get them all right, you can leave me a comment telling me you did and I will think very highly of you.

And all evening I wondered what smelled so good.
