Our Yard

We are SO happy to report that our yard has officially been transformed.  We have been taking baby steps since we moved here in January of 2013, but the last month has brought about new life to this place and we are so excited to show it to you.  My apologies for the over-abundance of pictures.

January 2013:

Last summer, we worked with our friend from church to build a beautiful patio.  We are SO grateful to him for all of his hard work and for showing us how to do everything!

We took out the big bushes in the front by ourselves and planted new bushes/plants sometime last fall:

We also took this beast out and worked with our neighbor to build a retaining wall and plant roses there instead.

Here’s what our place looked like in early June:

We still have some more to do, but my word, for right now we are going to enjoy this!!
