Before & After

With great delight, I hereby announce that the sod arrived today!

I’ve been waiting for a new back yard for over a year.  Today I have one.

This is what things looked like this morning:

I came home from school to find the ugliness gone:

Now the gate needs to be reinstalled.  Samson was certainly enjoying his perch as I watered the yard!

Before and after

After two hours in the yard today, both of my little plots of earth look much better.  I still have a ways to go in the back yard as I clean up winter’s mess, but the outlines are stronger and the possibilities are becoming clear.

My journey to Lowe’s this morning opened up for me a wealth of flower options.  This is going to be a wildflower year, with zinnias, hollyhock, and others goodies thrown around too.

I planted a raspberry bush today too.
