When we first bought out home in 2009, the gardening aspects of it were a neglected mess. I knew it would take a lot of work – and many years – before all the landscaping was at a level that would appeal to us and add some natural beauty to our house. But I didn’t really mind; it was a project I embraced wholeheartedly. I still do. And although there is still so much more to do, things have come a long way since then.
For example, this is what you saw in our backyard that first summer:
|Nothing to see here, folks, nothing to see...|
And this is what you saw by the end of August 2011, two years later:
|Hubby and I sit on that swing and enjoy the beauty around us.|
|There are so many flowers around our home now.|
|This is where you'll find me hanging out soon.|
We're getting there...slowly but surely!
This year’s gardening season is just around the corner, and I have a list of glorious plans for it. I can’t wait to get down and dirty with Mother Nature!
