A Little Landscaping Goes A Long Way

It never ceases to amaze me how God provides even the smallest things that make our hearts happy.

I love gardening. I have SO missed it since we moved from Old Town two years ago.

But once again He is faithful and provided this home with AMPLE opportunities to landscape!

I think the people that lived here before had a landscape design method of "blindfold yourself, spin around ten times and then go plant stuff." We've found flowers and plant in the most random of places.

But the great part is that we created this beautiful flower bed entiredly from rocks and plants found on our property. The only thing we bought was the dirt. And I've got offers for more plants from friends and family! Praise God!
Just around the corner there are house does not look quite so lovely. Pictures, explanation and update on that situation to follow soon.

That looks great! What's that big thing in the middle? Did you relocate the yucca plant?

I can't wait to see the pictures of the demolition and repairs on the other wall. Hope it's going well.

Looking good! Don't you just love the satisfaction in having a nice garden? I've got to get to work on mine - about the only thing I've done is a lot of thinking on what I'll do to the space!
