The outside at last

The outside……finally the outside.

The exterior. The grass. The plants. OMG landscaping and flowers!

A few weeks ago, we were able to have sod laid in the back yard. Now those of you who have been around the blog, remember the backyard looked like Jumangi? Large scary vines with weird flower like heads. Half dead trees and weeds completely covering the backyard. Here is just a sampling of the atrocity we called our backyard.

Fast forward a few months. Many tress are gone, a crew of people with large machinery came through  and leveled it out, brought in 3, yes 3 dump trucks of dirt and finally glorious sod. The backyard now does not resemble a horror movie that in would be afraid to get lost in.  It’s now pretty much a football field  of grass. Luxurious and ready for a very large tent to be put up in 2 weeks and 5 days.

There are still flowers to plant around trees and mulch to be laid but can you say improvement?


The front yard has also come full circle. It still has a ways to go, but there is no comparison from before to after.

Notice on your right the greenery? Yeah that’s not flowers or even plants. Weeds people, weeds.


More weeds and other NON beauties. Can you see the blue porch ceiling? Makes me happy.


There is still sod to go in on either side but we now have roses, per my request, because what old farmhouse doesn’t have roses? The sidewalk going up to the porch is the wedding aisle.


We also have Red Crepe Myrtle trees.


We have azaleas and more roses. We have a hedge to cover the air conditioners and just look at that Magnolia Tree. One day soon as I look at the kitchen window, there will be Magnolia flowers to view. LOVE.


And now for the commercial. You all know how much we DIY EVERYTHING. However will the wedding so close we called our friends Jireh Custom Landscape to come and landscape the front and sides. They were A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Anything landscape oriented, they are the people for you. They also specialize in hardscape items. Stay tuned for more information.


Wedding preparation is in full swing. Interested in watching the nuptials via live feed, let me know and I’ll give you the details.
