I was about 6 months pregnant when we got our home, and the middle of hot humid Ga summer. Not either of those things kept me from making this house look like a home, even if it was just the beginning. Almost 7 years later and I'm still very much working on it, but here's some pics I found of one of my first garden projects. I hate to think I never took pics of the garden when we first moved in, but that was before I had a digital camera, and there is no way I got around to looking through all those old photos.

|One of the beauties that will come from this garden. Much later of course, for now lets start at the beginning.|
|I also made a flower bed on both sides of the house. This was not there before, and it made a huge difference. This also took forever as I had to remove grass, and I put down weed barrier stuff.|
|My front walkway looks pretty horrible. Aparranttly I was having a really hard time figuring out what I wanted to do with the border. Hmm, grey or red, grey or red? It was a mess, and I wanted it over with. I still have my little turtle and pig!!|
|Another idea I had. Notice how I really wanted my shutters black. Much later I finally got around to doing that. Also I had a lot of pretty flowers in mind. Looks pretty good doesn't it?|
|Oh yeah look at that lawn. I wish,,, lol. I think I didn't finish putting all my lovely flowers in this one, but you get the idea.|
|My weeping crabapple tree is blooming, and this is actually what is still there now.|
|Looks like it's time to re mulch. If it weren't for the blooming bulbs, there would not be much going on right now.|
|I put cracked flagstone throughout the garden simply because I liked the way it looked, and it really helped when I walked in there, as I didn't get all muddy.|
|Isn't that beautiful?|
