I am reporting back on my lovely back yard. I showed you back in March how my yard was bare and how I bargained for plants. I am reporting back with nothing but success.
My family has suffered because I spend sunny days outside all day, my husband has suffered by eating what ever I throw at him on those days, but I am still proud of myself. And besides, it’s job security for counselors right?? 🙂
So check out my yard now.
If you ever need to feel successful in life..plant something. I am not kidding, I love that I can do this, I love that the yard is my canvas.
I stopped by my old house today and talked to the new owner, who is my friend, I wasn’t stalking. I was looking through my yard, well, her yard now. I had no idea what I was doing at the time, so I was just dropping bulbs and plants into the ground, hoping it looked good.
I pretty much sucked at this when I first started, but everything grew. Apparently they give you heights for a reason. Always plant the tall things in back. Who knew? But in my defense, I was excited about seeing things grow, so not knowing I just threw things into the ground. The beauty of perennials is that they can easily be moved.
So what’s stopping you? Go throw something into the ground today.
