~some Yard Work Finally Getting Done~

Well, it's been a while since I posted last. We have been busy (when it's not been raining or snowing), working hard on the yard. Here are some before and after pictures of the front flower beds. Still some work to do and try to be PATIENT while everything comes up and fills in. Patience is not my virtue!

This is the bed in our front yard by the street.  Before...


These little beds next to the porch get only annuals, they add so much color!

There is still so much work to be done on the front yard, like GRASS! There will be hanging baskets and plants in the pots on the front porch but I am waiting a little on the weather. I really am most excited about...having a full lawn.

When we moved in, the front yard looked so much different. No porch or sidewalk. There was a little "putting green in the front yard with one big Christmas tree and 3 evergreen shrubs, the rest was red rock. Oh how I hated the rock! It seems like it took us forever to dig it up. The porch and sidewalk are brand new last year as well as the planters.

There has been plenty of work going on in the back yard also. John has been hard at work getting a "new" bed under our crabapple tree. I will give you a little peek this next weekend. In the meantime, there is plenty of work going on inside as well!
