Been just over a year now since I re-did the front yard, things are filling in much better, and look how much my lil Black Pine tree grew! I cant seem to find a good time of day to take pics, so this is the best I could get...a compliment to me tho has been neighbors on their walks have been stopping and taking pics of my yard, with a few seeing me on my dog walk and stopping me to say how they love my yard Smile makes me feel good!, haha, so heres a few updated pics.











Ive got more pics of other stuff to add, but not tonight, im tired.

And finally...for now...a pic of the patio set I painted last summer. I finally found some cushions (sunbrella) and some pillows that didn't cost me an arm and a leg. Cushions I'd prefer thicker but these will do for now. Ok, so NOW I'm done with pics for tonite...hahaha

It all looks so well put together. Nothing like how I looked with my head tilted funny in front of my co-workers while I was looking at it. lol. I need to do some serious weeding on all my stuff. This rain is getting my stuff out of control.

Seriously?! All of you are seeing the images upside down? That is too weird cuz they're all right side up on my laptop, my iPhone, AND my iPad. I don't even know how to fix it for you guys, except to post them upside down on my side, lol. That probly wouldn't work either. Dang, that sucks.

Edit: ok, so it just got weirder. I had to reset my iPhone cuz I thought I wasn't getting my emails, and after I did all that, I came back in here, only I was logged out (cuz I just reset my phone) and when I checked my posts, the last 6 pics were upside down (so now I know what you all are talking about...) BUT, when I logged in, I checked again and all the pics, including the last 6, are right side up! WTH!

Ok, so I am doing this again...you shouldnt have to hang upside down to see these, haha, im doing it from my laptop.

Been super hot here, its summer afterall, things are holding up well, things do tend to stop blooming in these heatwaves though Sad but I havent lost anything!






A little project I did last Sunday. I re-did the pathway to the bench in a granite "flagstone", I totally think it looks better but if you dont, dont tell me, LOLOL




And...I figured out a new project for myself!!! This planter is raised, i have my "river" starting here and then it drops to the next level, then down to the next level, etc. sooooooo, im thinking of removing everything from this top tier planter (leaving the juniper "tree" of course, and the Amaryllis...it does TOO good here, I dont want to disturb it) and then dropping down a pond and some boulders for it and then relandscaping...the image in my head has it looking pretty cool







so next pics I post will either be the process of doing it, or the finished deal Smile

Thank you Amy! Summer is definitely the time it looks least pretty just cuz the heat kinda stops things from wanting to bloom. Last year I bought some Zinnias during the summer that really looked beautiful all the way up til Christmas, so I think I'm gonna look for some of those again.

I may have already hit a roadblock on my pond idea. Sad I've been looking on Amazon and I'd like a preformed pond rather than just the plastic liner stuff. Plastic liner stuff gets really really poor reviews. However, I have two limitations on pre-formed. One is the size, they all seem to be bigger than the planter itself, which isn't so much of a problem, would just be a little more work, but limitation number two I think would prevent it all from happening, and that is the location of the trunk of the big juniper. No way around that without removing the juniper and I really don't think I want to do that. HOWEVER! In looking at the various ideas, I found pond less waterfalls. I'll have to investigate just how these things work but I may be able to use my existing River, with its tiers, and actually have a functioning waterfall affect! Now that would be really cool! It basically looks like I'd bury a catch basin, that has a hose, and attach it to a rock with pump above it. They sell a realistic looking "rock" for this function, so I'd just remove an existing rock, and replace it with this waterfall rock. So while the entire river wouldn't be flowing, it'd have the affect of a river flowing with the three or so tiers dropping water to the area below! I have to look much further into it but it seems like it'd be really cool. Or look for a smaller pre-formed pond for the top tier planter. Or both! Lol

i love the idea of the river over the pond BUT not sure how much work it will be to keep the rock from growing algae on them.... digging a pond with roots near by sound like a nightmare.

love the new flagstone over the old steppers you had there.

Yeah Jenn, I was up til 2:30 in the morning contemplating it all. Don't know if either idea will happen. For the waterfall, it's something I should have considered beforehand...to do it now would mean basically starting all over. Rocks have to be cemented in and sealed, a huge catch basin has to be put at the bottom of each tier and then filled with gravel or something, it's quite the undertaking. I watched a few YouTube videos and it's straightforward enough, but ugh, just a lot of re-doing everything and in the end, not sure it'll be worth it. With the pond, I can totally see just a black pool of water there, I think it'd look awesome. I have leftover granite flagstone that I'd be able to put around the edge, it'd stay clean from debris for the most part cuz I don't have trees that drop a bunch of leaves, BUT...that trunk of the juniper has quite the slant to it, it's pretty much in the middle of the planter, then like you said, the roots...from all accounts, either the pre-formed or the liner is a P I T A to get situated and formed to the hole, with backfilling collapsing edges and all that fun stuff, not to mention chances at leaking, I dunno, it's something I'd love to see there, just not sure it's worth it either. I was thinking some kind of cool fountain maybe. I have one I like, I'll find a pic and post it, I just really love water features and this spot is ideal for one. I just need to figure out something that'll work there...I just haven't been happy with how that top tier looks, something just isn't right about it.

Thanks Jenn! That flagstone was given to me! I wish it had a little more in the way of brown tones in the veins but overall I think it looks totally better than the step pavers that were there. I hated how fake they looked, lol.
