so, to my shame and shagrim our garden was a disaster. my parents would visit, and within an hour or so my mom would be out there trying to make sense of the weeds. it was embarrassing. we didn't have any of the right tools for maintenance either. check out the grass in the second picture; dear hubby would try to cut it with scissors! oh, boy!
but, we've come a long way baby. the wild flower seeds that we threw into the yard have taken and now after a few years they are growing beautifully and continue to seed more and more of the garden. i love them. their bold colours are so summery. my perennials are thriving and things are finally taking shape.
this week my succulents are exploding with flowers.
the kids made some decorations for our porch (can you spot them?) and then ate apples!
check out their cute new hair do's too!
it's getting hot, hot, hot again here.
