It was a rainy weekend but we were able to go outside here and there to do our yard chores.
We moved in our home in December 2006. I thought putting in a yard would be easier and would show results so much quicker.....not so much.
I guess it's been about five years since we started planting. This is the first year I feel like everything is really taking off and I'm even able to grab a few plants here and there to add to our flower beds in the back. So exciting!
We have a little nook under our front patio that we planted a white flowering Dogwood tree, along with an assortment of flowering bushes and ground covers. It's also home to the sweet little fountain that Dan and Jake surprised me with for Mother's Day last year. We've been throwing pennies in making lots of wishes.
The close up photo of the heart shaped leaves, is a Redbud tree. We transplanted it from our front lawn to a place that gets more sun and less water. It's doing so much better. I'm really hoping next spring I get to see the spring blooms I keep reading about.
We've also been working in the back yard on our patio area. I'm wishing for a cottage type feel. A peaceful little nook that is private with lots of pinks, whites, yellows and blues.
Only two-in a half more days of work :) Our vacation is almost here!
See you soon :) xo
