Landscaping Fun

Hello and Happy Monday! You know, being a SAHM, I really don't mind Mondays. It gives me a chance to organize and regroup from the weekend. Did you enjoy yours? The weather was quite warm here...85ish both days. The contractors came on Friday and lowered the column heights of the sitting wall one level, which is much better. Here are the "pre-plant" photos.

Here's the porch, close up...

Still with me? Good, and thank you! Let's take a fabric break, shall we? I got my red 30s bundle in the mail today...I love the mix of patterns and lines that are included. I can't wait to get them into my quilt (after prewashing them, being red and all).

This last one looks more 40s to me but I love it anyway...kind of "French General" ish...

We spent most of Saturday shopping for perennials and then planting them. Our favorite garden center was just loaded with gorgeous plants. Dave loves to garden...he had already scoped out the joint so he knew just what to show me. We bought a bunch and ordered a tree for the front of the walkway as well. Here is the front bed with the new plants...mulch to come.

Yes, I will move that security sign! LOL

This azalea will be so pretty when it's fully bloomed!

Another of my favorites..."Gold Splash" Euonymus.

And at the garden center I found this cute frame with tiles for your house number...isn't it sweet?

So phase one of the planting is done. We still have work to do around the wall, more edging, borders, etc. But it's coming along!

Well, if you made it this far, I appreciate it! I'm off to wash some fabric!

  1. Looking good! Can't wait see more.

  2. Landscaping and fun do not seem like words that go together Jen. At least not to me. Those reds make me want to touch them and almost eat them. They look delicious.

  3. I have a problem here--which one I like better?? the landscaping job--or that stack of red 30"s---both are "wow"!!!
    Hugs, Di

  4. Your home is gorgeous. I love the landscaping work you have done. I am working on mine too, need to take some pictures. The red fabrics are so pretty too, can't wait to see what you do with them.
