That's right MINE!!!!
This time last year my yard was literally nothing but dirt.
In May last year we dug all the trenches (the old fashioned way, you know shovels and a lot of crazy), put in the sprinkler system, and I built the rock path and walls.
Then in June we laid some sod.
but that was about it until this spring when we started planting.
And now I am please to say this is in my yard. I have never had a yard of my own before (we always lived in apartment type things before and growing up I lived on 1.5 acres in Alaska, but my dad took care of all yard stuff. I think he liked to get away from all of us girls in the house.) So lets hope I don't kill it all. I probably will. I still have more trees to plant and weeding to do. Scott weeded and then put down Preen a few weeks ago, but then we have a ton of wind storms and I think we need to do it again. When we are done-ish I will show you what is all looks like.
Sadly all of your home improvement budget this year is going towards getting things done in the yard, so there is less I can do in the house. Which reminds me.... there are still 2ish days left to vote for the room makeover on Vintage Revivals. Please go vote for me so I don't have to walk past my sad and empty front room everyday for the rest of the year (and maybe forever).
