Still so much to do!

Well, Dan and I are continuing to work in the back yard.
I think we almost have it all done.

I have some pictures for you, but they were taken with my
phone a little while ago - so the quality is not the best,
but I really wanted you to see what we have been up to!

We planted these four azaleas tonight.

As you can see we still need to add mulch - but we have the azaleas here.
We still have to get some plants to go under the window -
I'm really wanting hydrangeas but I'm just not
sure how well they will do.

Although, if you look in the left upper corner of this picture, you will see a hydrangea that seems to be doing really well.
I also have to repot my geranium.
Maybe I can get this done tomorrow night.

Have to get some kind of plant to go into the pelican
and add the mulch.

This is the side of the house that we still the 
most work to do.
We have the plants and Dan is going to
fix the "screen" for around the 
garbage cans and air conditioner.

We are hoping to get this done later this week
and at have it all finished by the weekend.

Things certainly look different than when we bought the house a little over a year ago!

After we get this all finished THEN we will start working on the front yard.
But that project may have to wait for a little while.

Why?  Well, Dan has to have cataract surgery a week from Thursday and then they will do the other eye the next week.  Anyway, we figure he will out of commission for a little while to recoup.
Then we will do the front yard.

Some day it will be all done - 
then I'll really share!

Have a great rest of your week!


  1. Oh Carol, it looks so beautiful! I love your porch and the way the gazebo turned out with the flower beds! Good luck to Dan for his surgery, I'm sure everything will be fine. We'll have a graduation this weekend and then it's back to packing.

    1. Thanks so much Sue! We are working on it. Congratulations on the graduation (high school or college?)! Have fun!!!


Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
