Backyard Makeovers!

So while I was down in Florida Larry unfortunately had to work. So what was a girl to do? Read a book? Drink fruity drinks out of a coconut? Lay in the sun? Naww I completely redid the entire back yard. Well it needed it!! Plus I have a hard time relaxing it's a gift or curse I haven't completely decided.

Here's before:

After lugging about 25-30 loads of pine needles out of the back I arranged them hap-hazardly in the front.

Here's a picture of the back with all of the pine needles in the front and the timbers ripped up:

I found a turtle while ripping the timbers up!

And here's the finished product! We planted knockout roses and azalea's in the L Larry dug when he moved in.

We planted Indian Hawthorn and Sky Pencil's in the back and laid out cypress.

All in all I'm pretty proud I was able to accomplish so much in a week. I seriously don't think I've ever sweat so much in my entire life. It wasn't even that warm!!

I'm devestated to leave, and have warned Larry that should I ever see so much as a weed in my beautiful backyard I'll have his head on a platter!

Wow, that is quite an accomplishment! Maybe you should start a landscaping business as well as a bakery someday! ;-)
