And sunset at Lewis Ginter...very pretty.
Now..I have an aversion to physical labor. I only do yard work a very few weekends out of the year..it has to be the perfect temperature and humidity. At least I admit it..right? So this weekend we decided to redo the front yard. It was 75F, blue sky and beautiful! So we spent the entire weekend outside redoing the landscaping. Now..we have lived in the house for 2 years and planted nothing, mulched sparingly and really done nothing with the front yard. There was a 8 foot oak tree planted by the developer that needed to go (don't worry..we replace it!). So it took Jason 4 hours of swinging a pick axe to get that thing down, roots and all!
Then the tree got cut up in to bits and loaded in the pick-up...er..I mean wagon. Poor wagon..we abuse it so. Off to the landfill..mulch the tree will become!Then we go to a local nursery and buy a bunch of perinnials (remember..i don't do this often so they have to come back every year). We plant a crepe myrtle and 6 different perrinials in the front flower bed, a few plants in the beds in front of the windows, edge everything with composite edging and mulch! WEEKEND WARRIORS!!!
Of course, the dogs hated it. They weren't able to be with us so they had to stay at the windows and doors. Cali slept on the front mat and everyone else would jump up at the slightest sound! Here are Cali, Belle and Dante wanting out!
Dana is happy to take over an open window...we don't get opportunities to open windows often!
And we still have Belle..she is doing soooo well. She has been very easy. Her personality has come out and she is a sweetheart! And her skin is getting better..it is still flaky but the open sores have gone away. And she has gained some weight! I talked to someone tonight who is interested in her..so hopefully she will be going to her forever home soon! She is comfortable living in a home I think!
