This is my back yard. I am taking it back. I
am taking it back from itself. For the last 3 1/2
years, I've pretty much let it do it's thing.
Now, its mine again. It has taken me this long
to figure out what most everything is, which is weeds
and which are plants/flowers. I have been doing
some studying and finally figured out what I like
and what I dislike. So, this spring, I'm taking this
yard back...one flowerbed at a time.
I can tell you what many things are
in my yard.
Above are lilacs. This is what Heaven
will smell like. My back yard is surrounded
by lilacs. I love it!
I'm trying hard to plant perennials in my yard.
I have planted burning bushes and day lilies so far,
with many more on my list to plant. We planted
petunias today. These are annuals but will fill in the
holes until I can figure out what else to do-or until the
burning bushes get so big they take out the house! Haha!
I had some good helpers, though. Hey, when else
does mom let you play in the mud?
It started raining on us towards the end of planting today.
The kids loved it, though. A little rain doesn't slow them down.
It was a good day. Got some planting done, dirt under
my fingernails (groan) and soaking wet kids! I'm content.
