workin in the yard
When we bought our home in early spring this is what it looked like on the exterior. Granted, it was still very cold so the grass and leaves hadn't grown in yet, but there was a lot of work to do to get the front yard looking nice. We payed close attention to what the interior of our home was going to look like when we purchased it because neither of us are very good at home improvements. A few weeks in to the warm end of spring, beginning of summer, the yard started really bothering me. I wanted to give it a little face-lift. But, I didn't have a lot of money to spend. This project was definitely a labor of love, and I do love the way it turned out! Hope you do too!
So here is the front, blah!

Colin worked on the yard a lot this summer too. He mows every other weekend even though he pretty much hates it. I don't like yard work much either. He has also replaced several sprinkler heads and adjusted them so that our yard is always nice and green.
Over there on the left side of the garage is a new hibiscus flower. It hasn't done too well, but in the last day or two, it's beginning to show some promise.
