New views

The “new” old house in town is already changing!  The monstrous yews in front had to go.

BEFORE:That picture doesn’t really show how monstrous they were.  They were hide-a-bear big … if we had bears, that is.

AFTER:Now, it’s neat and tidy and should offer some color and/or “visual interest” most of the year.  Plants included: boxwood, hydrangea, coreopsis, and dianthus.

Oops …. forgot to get a picture of the old wagon (old picture below) in its new home.Yes, we moved it to town!  Rednecks that we are.

Views of our backyard:Bubbles is settling in to her new home:

So is Happy!  He has even made a new friend – Truman.For today friends, here’s to change!

    How charming! Great job getting rid of the yews, it really brightened up the front. I hope you are enjoying!

      Yes, definitely enjoying. The remodeling process is a work in progress though. We feel that we make a step forward in organization and take 1.5 steps back! 😉

    Don’t blame you for downsizing. Five acres is for the very young. I’m turning 65 in late November and I kinda wish I didn’t have two acres to take care of. My brother, who now lives here, mows and edges but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

    Oh, no doubt about it! 😉 Currently, I am figuring out (by observation) dog-walking-pooping etiquette! Should I blog a post about that??

    Everybody looks happy, especially Bubbles on her designated throne. The landscaping made a world of difference!
