The State of our Yard

I took all the photos in the collages on Memorial Day.

The magic of digital photography in avoiding the weeds and making spaces look better. Oh me oh my, we do have weeds galore.

On Tuesday we had the pad for Dear’s shop prepped and what a lot of work it is to get the ground ready for the cement slab. We had excavators, dump trucks and a huge roller on the property working from 7:30 am until 3:30 pm. The material that they dug up to begin with was dumped into our empty pond shell. Win, win. They also took some of our rock away for another family at church who can use it. A very productive day! I’ll feature a whole post on the beginning of this project but here is one photo from Tuesday.

The roller was huge and the vibrations from it shook the whole house.

Hope the last week of May is filled with good things for all of you!

  1. Looks lovely, everything looks like it is ready to burst forth. So exciting, to see a garden come to life after a long winter.

  2. You have lots of beautiful surprises over there! Looking forward to seeing it in real life one day soon.

  3. Ellen, you are blessed with a bounty of beautiful plants/shrubs/grasses. How nice that your husband will have a shop. Hope all goes smoothly.

  4. Ellen – I was about to write “the previous owners left the yard in very good shape” and then you admitted that you avoided taking pictures of the weeds … clever! In any event, it appears you have good “bones” to work with – that’s more than half the battle!

  5. I would say that the State of your yard is in great shape, Ellen, everything looks so beautiful and fresh! I know you are excited about your new project, it is amazing how projects little by little come to fruition, and before we know it another is completed, I don’t know about you and your Dh but we have a running lists of projects,~wink~
    Yes we are ending May on a very productive and happy month, even with temps. soaring. Have a blessed day.

  6. Wow, when those irises and peonies bloom… I foresee even more color in your already lovely garden. I like all the different textures you have. The downside of healthy plants is healthy weeds! It’s been a banner year for those, too 😦
