In the landscaping we've put out new mulch, pulled lots of weeds, and sprayed. We bought two varieties of apple trees for our backyard and hopefully I will have an arbor that we're going to grow bittersweet on this Fall. I know how some of you ladies love this stuff. I've always wanted to grow my own and my DH will be so happy that he no longer has to climb trees to get it for me. It seems to be a never ending process. I plan on adding a few things to the porch and back patio area. Hopefully, we will have a celebration for my husband's retirement and I would love to get a new set of wicker to put out back.
My little strawberry patch
Look they're growing!
These are so pretty, I have three different varieties, one is peach/ lilac combo, dark purple and purple/yellow combo.
This is on the side of my house in one of the little islands as I call them. Boy, do they take a lot of mulch! I'm not sure what these little purple flowers are maybe phlox?? Anyone know?
These are the stepping stones my kiddo use when they get on the bus, this is our side view from the porch.
My chives are blooming and my herbs are doing well.
I have lemon thyme, lemon balm, basil, and parsley right out my kitchen door.
The view of our home from the road
I put out some silk geraniums from Jo Ann's to put in my hanging baskets across the front here but the latest storms that passed through forced me to take them down because of the wind. I want to put some rocking chairs on the porch. I can just see it now. Oh...it's gonna look so neat! I'll share more pics later.
Have a great weekend,
