Outside is starting to shape up!!

After living in our new home for 9 months - things are beginning to take shape outside!! My husband is such a hard worker - he works hard all day, and then comes home to work hard some more!

Wednesday I bought plants for the planter boxes that are built into our house! I bought true dwarf boxwoods for year round color and then I added bacopa and a plant I don't know the name of:-) - it has yellow and green variegated leaves and will have small yellow flowers on them. I didn't want to add a lot of color to the boxes since they are up against our red house!

Then, yesterday Randy and Nathan poured sidewalks!

Next is the lawn .................I think putting a yard in is the worst part of building a new home! Give me tile and paint any day, but I don't love pulling a rake around!! I must admit - my husband does 99% of the work (probably more :-)!

Go Randy and Janice go! Putting in a lawn is the one reason I never want to build or move again as long as we both shall live. Soooo much work.
Hang in there.

Nothing like getting started at the first sign of sunshine. Good for you guys. You'll be mowing the lawn before you know it.
