A little of my front yard

White lilac

Flowering cherry, a weeping variety

Japanese Maple
When we bought our house almost 3 years ago, it was a brand new house and had absolutely no landscaping. Just many weeds. I designed what I wanted for both the front and back and we did the front the first year, and the backyard the second year. We couldn't be happier with the outcome and really love our house and yard. This morning I'm off to a nearby plant nursery to buy annuals and a few perennials. I'll be outside planting tomorrow and and on into the weekend. With all that's going on with our adoption, it helps me to relax. I love Spring. :)
