Rather than doing a peek at my iPod (which I think I haven't done in weeks), I thought I'd give you a yard update. Complete with pictures. We still have a ways to go, but now I kind of wish I'd taken before/after pictures. I didn't, because it looked so horrible I didn't figure I'd ever show them to anyone. But it's hard to really appreciate all of our hard work, without knowing how bad it was before.
Just imagine, the grass had moved into the plant beds, and since there was other stuff in the plant beds, we couldn't mow it. You get the idea. BAD!
But here's after a month of pulling weeds, putting down new landscape cloth and 208 bags of mulch. That sounds totally ridiculous!! LOL The close-up purple plant is lavendar, and I have it scattered all around the house. There's also daylillies, knock-out roses and verbena. My oleander hasn't started blooming yet, and in the fall, there will be a whole different set of things blooming.
There's also a picture of our baby ducks. We started with ten and ended up with two. :( And we have a bazillion geese, they seem to have all made it. And my bunny rabbit, Hoover. There's actually two of them. They don't like weeds but love Lirope and Thyme. LOL
LOL...Okay, that's all for show-n-tell today. Thanks for listening.
Peace and love,
