Hello Blogland. I missed you. I got to spend the better part of last week in Omaha, NE. While there, I got to shop a lot! Mostly for furniture and jewelry. I'll have a post soon about the magic of Nebraska Furniture Mart. In the mean time, I thought I would share a little about what I've been working on for our yard.
Our yard was in a bad state when we bought our house. Only about a third of of yard had grass, the rest was dirt. There were about a dozen dead trees on our property (some hanging right over our house!). And the shrubbery left something to be desired. As we didn't have a long term solution in place yet, last year, we just worked on maintenance. Matt removed brush from a huga aree of our yard. We removed 14 trees that were either dead or located too close to our house for comfort. We also added grass to a huge section of our yard. Beyond that, last summer was spent enjoying our new house and making plans for turning our existing yard into our dream yard.
This year, I have big plans. We've already progressed on our grass mission. We started putting more seed down in late March. I will post pictures if the rain stops long enough to let me take some.
