Working on the list

While I'm working on the list of 100 things I want to do, I'm also crossing off one item on the 25 I've already posted, that being transform my little yard into a place I visit and enjoy.

The first step was finding a landscaper whose work I liked and who I trusted. Luckily for me, that part was easy. I've known her for years and have seen a couple of projects she'd recently completed, projects in small spaces like my own little yard. She's a wizard with small spaces.

The second step was removing the jungle and overgrowth and dead grass and thriving weeds that I'd let take over the space. I did not get a before photo of that because I wouldn't have had the nerve to post the shame.

All that we left behind was the two Bradford Pear Trees, and the Confederate Jasmine on the fence. This is what the yard looks like now and the blank canvas has me very excited.
