|The messy beginning post weeding|
|The first days|
|Pumpkin in progress|
|Hibiscus, cactus garden, Ebony & Ivory Crape Myrtle, etc.|
Later this week, we have hired landscapers to not only clean out the poison ivy and English ivy that has overtaken the backyard copse but they are adding another crape myrtle in the front yard (we’re tucking ourselves in and blocking the views of neighbors!) and a red bud tree on the corner. We purchased boulders and rocks (my fella’s request) and after hauling twenty bags of black mulch (my car can only accommodate eight bags at a time), the landscapers are bringing and adding the mulch to the front yard. Until then, here are the views of my work-in-progress garden.
Blood, sweat, tears, and black mulch make everything a bit better.
