Our first Spring in our new home

Since the lilac tree out front is now blooming as are some of the bushes, I thought I'd share some pics with you all.
Particularly worthy of notice is that ALL of the river rock (which was around the entire house!) has been taken and mulch has been laid in front.
The back yard is now ready for some late Spring/Summer perennial planting!  I must have flowers, and lots of them. 
Check out our back fence....we got the idea to decorate it from our next door neighbors who've created such a cute backdrop to their flower bed.  Soon we hope to have a lattice privacy panel in place on one side of our deck, which will give me more places to hang "treasures" I find. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and that you are all enjoying beautiful Spring weather in your neck of the woods!


  1. How did you get rid of that river rock? I have lots of white stones around the landscaping at mine that I want OUT. So far the only way I can think of to get them out is to dig them up and dump them. Is that what I am facing?

  2. Vanesa, We posted on Craigslist. Some we sold for xx/per wheelbarrow full, then we began just giving away. Worked like a charm! I never liked the look; I feel it further dates the house.

  3. Have fun in your new home decorating and making it yours. I love the Lilac tree in front, very pretty. Blessings!

  4. How pretty!


  5. Trhtank you, Kimberly and Real Food Runner! I love "feathering my nest"!!!! And that lilac tree smells absolutely heavenly when in bloom!
