Backyard Before and After - Year 1

Oh interweb. I had no idea how much I would love our little backyard. No idea. I could stare at it scheming - literally - for hours. Also? I had no idea I would love digging in the dirt so much. It's like really cheap therapy.

The nice thing about this yard? If ALL I'd done was plant a daisy and throw down some mulch - it would still look 1435% better.  Before (panning from left to right around the yard):
And now: (panning around from left to right again)


Not to toot my own horn, but: toot.

  2. It does look nice. I miss having a yard to play around. The wildlife usually ate anything I planted, but it still felt good to be out there digging around in the dirt.

  8. Toot indeed :)

    Greetings from Lamb! Thank you for stopping by to show me some bloggy love. It was quite a shock to wake up and discover that I’d been featured on SITS, especially with my face covered in sticky cinnamon! Now I have lots of fun new blogs to explore. If you do try out my face mask, be sure to take a photo and email it to me. I’ll feature you in a post with a link to your blog :)
