So, I was doing a lot of yard work today and decided to take a few pictures of what's going on in the front and back yards :)
This picture and the few that are following are of the front yard. As you can see, I've pulled out/dug up more of it.
There was a bush about 2.5 feet high, that the kid trimmed down the bark basically. I was planning on taking it out, but not right at that moment. Suffice it to say, I dug it out today.
Tip: Whack at the tree/bush hard a couple times and then step away. You will see a slew of bugs scatter when they realize their home is on the way out.
Oh and another thing I found, this WHOLE area, with the dirt?? Yeah, it's covering the old side walk. My living room and 2nd bathroom and laundry were an addition to the house. Awesome addition, but I guess the previous owners just decided to cover up the side walk (probably cheaper). So, I am uncovering it and will figure out something creative to do with the look :)
The kid wanted to plant some new flowers (you know me, I keep ripping them out) so we've got these 2 so far!
Updated picture of the sun flowers growing on the side of the house :)
These are the potatoes :)
You can see, I've been adding more and more dirt, therefore my back yard is losing more and more grass! LOL. It's a learning process, but fun :)
More sun flowers, in the back yard
This was the vegetable box that was moved over from the very back patio. Ahem. It is now full of grass/weeds. Yes, I know. It's on my list.
Some of the flowers blooming right now :)
I now have a lounge chair, which I need to clean and then use :) Also, there are some sun flowers starting to grow back in the far back patio. Oh and I moved the rosemary back there too, hoping it does better.
I've added a Bell Pepper plant and a Tomato plant :) Both are doing good :)
