That picture doesn’t do justice to sheer amount of horticulture we’ve brought into our yard.
I think it total we have somewhere between 20 and 30 trees we’ll be planting, along with a small handful of shrubs.
I’m not really looking forward to the actual physical labor that is waiting for us on Saturday, but I definitely am looking forward to enjoying the fruits of our labor afterward.
In five years, our backyard will be looking quite nice.
I’d still like to get a few more things done in the front yard this year, but I’m worried we’re running out of time!
Below Walter gawks at the size of one of the new trees.
And here Jennifer shows off one of the Japanese Maples she begged for. Maybe in 20 years it’ll be big enough to really enjoy! My sister Nancy is in the background. Couldn’t do this without her!
