yard progress

our yard is big and out of control. it was too much to take on last spring to try to tame it in the spring since we were just moving in. now that we have lived here a year (what?!) I decided it’s time to kick it up a notch on the landscaping. 10 yards of mulch, lots of posion ivy, and hours of work later, it is coming along nicely.  i enjoy spending at least an hour before sunset working on it the evenings. it’s really taking shape, but i know that maintaining it is going to be a full time job.

a couple before shots:and in progess/ currently after:

chop. chop.  the backyard has yet to be touched, trying to get the front yard under control first.  the boy is more just playing than actually working on something here. 😉learning lessons as i go, next time i probably won’t be planting my tulips in a line …seemed like a good idea at the time …love the short window of time when this tree is so beautiful.

after: a little love around the mailbox.  i still don’t care for the big rocks down there but they are little hard for me to move and I can’t really dispose of them easily so for now they stay.  the start of a garden to the left and some pretty spring colors. our neighbors landscaping is just beautiful and an inspiration.first peony of the season.

  • Nikki - Creo que también es muy importante estar donde hay que estar y en el momento más conveniente. Me explico: lucía un enorme banner de en las horas siguientes al terremoto/tsunami de Japón. Ninguna ONG llegó antes (si bien es cierto que es una de las grnhues).Enaorabdena por el blog y por vuestro proyecto. Me parecen muy interesantes. Un saludo.ReplyCancel

  • - – Congrats! You deserve it! I remember the first time one of my logos made it into LogoLounge. That is such an awesome feeling! Which reminds me… I have TONS of logos to submit.ReplyCancel

  • - J’avais les mêmes pensées en contemplant une préposée à bicyclette dans les rues en pente et enneigées de Mazamet (Tarn). Ce sont les derniers héros (hérauts ?) du service public. D’autant que désormais, on ne reçoit plus de lettres autres qu’administratives. les mots d’amour circulent en immatériel.ReplyCancel

  • - I love her ideas, a table cloth as shawl, the German, I think it is from the army, jumpsuit. There is definately something adrogynous going on. I would wear some of her outfits. The Fashion Philosopher.ReplyCancel

  • - This came as part of a bundle with a Panasonic camera. The camera’s external dimensions are clearly larger than the internal dimensions of the waterproof “sleeve” making it impossible to use for its intended purpose. When bundling products Amazon should make sure that they will actually work together.ReplyCancel

  • - “Consumes our originality”–wow, Judy, that’s the line that particularly grabbed me this morning. And I’m hearing a word from God right now: that we should VALUE our originality; praise and thank Him for it, rather than (in my case, recently) feeling Bad about it, trying to Hide It, and spending way too much energy Defending it from perceived attackers (which are likely all in my befuddled mind). That’s my burst of spontaneous two cents. Thanks for being God’s open window today–Sonshine pouring in! God bless you abundantly–love, sis CaddoReplyCancel

  • - Mada disse:Sueli OVBDê uma chance à Camper. Lá não tem só sapatenis. Tem alguns até com salto pequeno que são lindos e muuuito confortáveis. Eu já tive vários, uso até o fim e eles duram. Às vezes não escapo dos Compeed, que a Claudia Oiticica bem lembrou, mas é mais por usar sapatos de noite e caminhar do que pelos sapatos da Camper.O post da Lina sobre a Camper fala tudo.ReplyCancel

  • - Beste JCB de G. Waarom heeft Bas "natuurlijk" gelijk? Juridisch gezien is het misschien niet ok maar daar gaat het niet om. Laat ik het eens omdraaien. Als jij Wilco was zou jij het erg vinden als er op zo'n manier fantastische reclame werd gemaakt voor je muziek?ReplyCancel

  • - So what things should you delegate? That depends on an analysis of your four zones: your Zone of Genius, Zone of Excellence, Zone of Competence, and Zone of Incompetence. {These concepts are from The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks, a book that I referenced in Which Comes First: Success or Happiness?}ReplyCancel

  • - If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.ReplyCancel

  • - For the love of God, keep writing these articles.ReplyCancel

  • - I agree that it just depends on where you are and what you do. Where I am, the scene is quite young–I’d say 2/3 of the folks are under 30. Which is starting to make me feel like an old maid. Where my boyfriend is, people tend to be much older–sort of pushing forty or just past it.ReplyCancel
