This year I am determined to not be the white trash neighbors with the crappy yard. Keith and I really don't have any clue where to start on landscaping, but I thought the least we could do would be to keep our lawn green! He's worked so hard on fixing our sprinklers. The people who lived her before apparently made the sprinkling system out of something (I can't remember what) that is apparently ridiculous to use for a sprinkling system. Anyway, Keith's worked really hard this year to at least make sure the sprinklers reach all areas of the lawn. I'm amazed at how green our lawn can actually look! I planted some stuff in the front flower bed, but I'm not in love with it. I think I will add to it.
This is also the first year my flower pots haven't died in the first week! They aren't anything amazing, but I love all the bright colors. I think Keith gets tired of me saying, "Look how good my flower pots are doing!" everytime we pull up to the house! But he's a good sport, thankfully!
Continuing with more firsts for us this year, our garden looks the best it ever has! I don't think you can really tell from these pictures, but it actually looks like there was a method to our madness this time! We are going to have lots of beans and tomatoes, so looks like I will be busy canning!
COLORFUL Modern Holiday Mantel!
