Front Yard Progression

May 2016
It's been awhile since I've updated the progress of the front yard, which some of you know was a once-upon-a-time lawn. The Husband and I didn't like the lawn because of the upkeep (on his part) and its need for too much water, especially during droughts. But, because the Mama liked having a well-manicured lawn, well, there you have it. When the Mama soared into the universe, thus began the undoing of the lawn.

Hopefully, come late Spring, sunflowers will be growing in that empty patch on the left, as well as here and there in the foreground. Can't get enough sunflowers. I'll also be sowing wildflowers in that empty patch to see if it was simply a fluke that they didn't so well last year. Last fall, I transplanted some canna lilies nearby. If they like the area, they'll take over like a wildfire, which is okay with me.

Onward and upward.

  1. Your house and yard (over here that's a garden) in the last and next-to-last photos remind me very much of an English country cottage. I'm glad you've got plenty of greenery back even though it isn't actually a lawn - it's beginning to look very pretty :)

    1. I'm not used to calling the yard a garden yet, because I'm creating different "gardens" within the yard. I love that it reminds you of an English country cottage. Those gardens inspire me with their randomness of delight.

    1. Hi, Jesh. The Husband lets me create in the garden to my heart's content. I love that he's so willing to do all the heavy lifting and pushing, watering, and whatever request I make. Lucky me. :-)

    1. Thanks, Suzy. Come summer, some, if not much of the space will be brown. That's okay because after winter and spring rains, it'll be green.
