Outdoor Update

As I was walking around watering flowers and trees this morning, I realized that I had never updated you on my “landscaping” progress.

I showed you the before pics here so today I’ll show you some pretty after pics, and some of where we are now. 

I’m trying my hand at plants in pots again this year – I have never had much success with that cuz I am lazy – that’s all.  

Here is the front flower bed today.  We were blessed with a lot of rain while I was on my trip to New York.

The other thing that happened while I was in New York was not so happy.  I was joyfully anticipating the pots on my back porch to be overflowing with beautiful color, just like the one in the front but instead I found this.

Yes, all four planters looked just like this…the culprit…our puppy…

he decided they looked like a good snack.  Ugh!!  I guess I will try again next year!!

Oh well, moving on.  I also transplanted a climbing rose bush which completely overtook a flower bed that is in front of our master bedroom window.  This is what it looked like in full glory before I moved it – see a little unruly, and crowding out the other regular rose bushes in that bed (please ignore all the grass growing in there).

Here it is after I chopped pruned it down to size and moved it to a sad little flower bed on the side of our house around the corner from the front of our house.  You can see this one from the street and gets good morning sun.  I also planted some daylillys in this bed.  I have wanted some of these for a long time.  
Next, if you follow me on instagram, you know we scored some really good sized burch trees @$50 each!!  Here’s a little fun collage of them going in.  {my hard-working man decided to strike a pose, while I sipped on my sweet tea in the shade ;)}
And the after.
and my hard-workin man after 😉 – oh and our puppy

My hubby was awesome and knocked out another yard project that was pretty high on his list while I was in New York.  I’m saving that for another post though since this one is already pretty long :).  Tune in tomorrow for that one – it involves, mud and rocks.

Blessings!!

  1. I have a puppy too that thinks roses are for eating. I couldn't believe she ate them thorns and all. Hopefully next year will be better for us!
