Rewind to seven years ago.
Our backyard was bare save for a few daffodils the contractors "couldn't get rid of."
That's what he said, "We couldn't get rid of them."
There was some landscaping on the front side,
but the back was bare.
We started slow and small.
And in no time at all, we had this!
Please ignore the fire pit
that desperately needs repainting
and is filled with rain water.
The big boy on the left is a viburnum.
I thought I was getting the transitional snowball version,
but this is actually a lace cap.
Either way it's stunning.
He was teeny when I bought him!
Same with the limelight.
Here's a little comparison:-)
My husband always asks when I'm going to blog about the patio.
I have blogged about it before, but here's a plug for the handy guy.
He built this baby with his own two hands.
It was big time labor, but it saved us big time bucks, too!
It's important when planting to remember it really will grow!
Not a bad idea to follow the guidelines on the label.
Spacing is everything.
We are settling in to a back-to-school routine.
What about you?
