ur Yard. A blank slate, a yard that has not been tended too in more than 30 years!!! There are only a few camellias, and some plants that we brought over from our old home We have kind of delinated where the grass is going to be and some of the beds...but basically it is weeds(30 years worth of vines!), and a large dirt patch! This weekend I was able to make it feel just a tiny bit more like us. With the addition of a small bricked in flower garden.
You see, we kept ALOT of brick from the renovation. We took down part of a terrible addition in the back and rebuilt it. The back of our yard is a kind of refuse pile of bricks and mortar...luckily it is hidden by the back garage because it is U-G-L-Y!
|Many, many loose bricks.|
|All stacked up by my wonderful husband. |
Aren't stacked bricks pretty?
But I can see using most of it in various projects around the yard in the future. This little garden was just the beginning. In the next 2 weeks we will get sod, and I think that the yard will start looking much better. But for now my little pansies make me HAPPY, and the dirt patch doesn't bother me quite as much.
|Pretty pansies...notice the acorn at the bottom of the photo....we have alot of those too! Anyone need an oak tree, we can probably grow you one from the millions of acorns!|
Maybe some day I can have a garden like my friend Elizabeth over at Pretty Pink Tulips....
Do you all like to garden? My hands in the dirt this weekend was really fun!
