We a planted bunch of shrubs and 2 trees this weekend- about 13 to be exact. Everything went pretty smooth. The most difficult were the sky rocket junipers at each corner of the house. It looks so much better! There is still so much work to do in the yard. Baby steps- right? This weekend I'll be doing our bed lining and putting down more dirt and mulch. I love gardening!
I really wish we could paint the outside of the house. I need to do some stucoo repair 1st and we know that is going to co$t us. I really do miss living in a great apartment, spending alot of money on new clothes, going out and looking great. I don't think I have even bought myself new work clothes not to mention clothes for me. Every extra penny goes into the house- and willingly. That's the scary thing. I love this house and I love making it beautiful.
June bugs are invading our yard. They are about as gross as the palmetto roaches I used to live with in Florida. I think they live in dirt. They come from under the ground. I hope they are called June bugs for a reason. I don't think I'd be able to deal with them in July and August as well.
Here are the plants!
We've got Magnolia trees, Sea Green Junipers, Summer Wine Nine bark, Cranberry something or anothers and rocket junipers.
Because you were dying for a closer look.
