Oh how does our garden grow – Part 2

Since I did a little backyard update last week, I wanted to keep with the flow and do a front yard update. Above is a picture from way back when in October 2009, the month we moved into this place. You can even see the for sale sign post still stuck in the grass, and the fancy pieces in the garage windows that we immediately ripped out the moment we pulled into the driveway.

Then in August, we finally got around to ripping out some of the hedges and going with a more leafy theme. It was looking pretty sad, but there was hopes for growth. This is the part that makes me super impatient, I just want to see progress. Like right NOW.

But right NOW doesn’t work with plants, unless you want to drop a mortgage payment at the garden center on the fully grown plants that need a UHAUL truck for transport. So here we are, a full year later. Is it weird that my favorite part is the new hose holder?

    It’s not weird at all. There’s nothing quite as frustrating as a poorly-installed hose holder. I’m just counting the days until the one at my parents house falls off the wall.

      haha. Yes, I was very excited to take that THING off the wall and put the hose in the mustard yellow pot!

    Wow, they’ve really grown! A lot of our plants died this summer 😦

      I know! I can’t believe we didn’t kill them all!
