Yard Update


Alrighty, so the last update was back in September.

Let me refresh your memory:

It was looking pretty dismal, but hey, we were making progress from the bare dirt that it had been.



Well, in addition to all of the great plants we received from multiple friends (love them, ferrying buckets of plants to work for me, so nice), I had sprinkled a packet of wildflower seeds around.  

It turns out that that packet was a fantastic investment.

For $2 max all the following sprouted:

(sorry, not the purple iris, all of the white flowers in the background...but doesn't my new camera take bea-u-ti-ful pictures?)

...this cool red cluster...

...these fun red-orange things...

...and all the rest of this stuff...
Pretty dang awesome.

Then we added some colorful annuals and some mulch...


....ta da...
a much improved planting bed.


Ooh, let's do some before and afters, shall we?







We're not done, this is just another progress update.
But we are making progress.



So, what do you think?

It's beautiful! We're learning that it's hard work but so rewarding to keep your landscaping up. (Really it's just hard work for us right now because it doesn't look awesome yet, but we're getting there:)
