Show Us Where You Live Friday!

I'm joining Kelly at Kelly's Korner for



Today's party is for showing your garages and yards. I did a post on our yard a few weeks back when I joined a garden party. I thought I'd repost that today and join Kelly. So, here it is...




My wonderful husband has been working hard on our yard to make it an oasis for us and our family. He'd do a little and then change a few things and add some more. We still are trying to decide on whether or not to get a fence, but I think we have it the way we want it....at least for now!

I so wish we had some before pics to show you. There was nothing in the back yard and only holly bushes in the front. I need to take some more pics once everything is in bloom, but I wanted to brag on my hubby a little now for all his hard work!


The front:



We plant pansies in the fall and begonias in the spring. These look a little beat down from all the rain we've been getting!



The Back deck and yard:

My new patio set !! I picture a lot of summer dinners out here!



He alternated knock out rose bushes with a small evergreen around the deck.


A close up of the knock out roses in the back yard.


Before long, these will bloom into my favorite flower- hydrangea!!! I can't wait to cut some of those babies and bring them inside! We lined the back of the house with these.

Here's one more recent pic of the front of the house!

I didn't post any pics of our garage, because let's face it, it is a MESS!!
Go over to Kelly's and check out everyone else's yards and garages.
