Ok, Linda, here you go. She twisted my arm into posting these pictures. We’ve been quite busy prepping our yard for planting and also sprucing up with inexpensive borders and mulch. There are planters to fill, flowers and trees to purchase, and the list goes on and on. Do you all know our first child, Ginger(above)? She doesn’t get to appear on the blog often enough. I have to change thatSmile

We’ve set our sprinkler system to water already. Have you? We water only on even days and thank goodness for the rain we’ve been getting recently…
I was pleasantly surprised to see our very tiny apple tree in blooms. We planted it last year and I had no idea it bloomed.

A view of the front in progress.  We intend to take out those shriveled up  Nandenas in the front beds and transplant them in the back. We purchased brown mulch by the bulk. The hubby prepped and put down the mulch himself. I took the beer and water out to him while he workedSmile. We also purchased thin brown metallic borders from Lowes. It cost almost $700 for all the borders to cover the front and back garden beds.
So unappealing right now, but in a few weeks, it will be nice and green and filled with vegetables. This is the section of our back yard where we plant our vegetable garden. We hope to have it prepped by tomorrow.

a sampling of what will be planted…

 We still have so much work to do in the yard and with two kiddos, it takes twice as long. However, I thoroughly enjoy yard work and find it therapeutic.  I will share more pictures once things begin to flourish. Blessings and Happy Thursday all! XX
