a glimpse of my backyard

I just thought I'd show you a peek of some of the goings on in my backyard - one of the past time that has kept me away from blogging these past few weeks.

When we first moved into our house after less than a year of being married, we didn't quite understand the amount of work needed in our landscaping. We don't even own a half an acre, but it is chock full of plants, trees, and shrubbery. Now seven years later, we are still getting the hang of it - lol! We only managed to spread one truck load of mulch so far this summer and probably will get two more by the end. I never thought that I would ever possess a green thumb....but I must say - gardening is starting to grow on me! Perennials are my new best friend - even though some bright, cheery annuals speckle their way throughout my beds.

We still have a long way to go....but it is a learning process and a super fun past time to share with my hubby!

Thanks for taking a peek in my backyard!


  1. Gorgeous, reminds me of the gardens in Nantucket.

  2. Those a so amazing however, the photos are awesome. How were they taken?

  3. Hi Bgal! I took them with my good ol' Canon camera! I'm still getting the hang of it - but love it just the same!
