the yard.

Ty has been working really hard on our yard so far this year.

I'm not much of a "work outside in the yard and get all dirty" kind of girl, so he's taken the initiative to get our yard looking nicer this year...and I've taken the pictures.

 These are 4 blueberry bushes.

 These are the two raised garden beds Ty built. There's all kinds of stuff in here including kale, lettuce, tomatoes, strawberries and other stuff.

 Here's the regular garden, which doesn't look like much right now, because I don't think there's too much planted in it yet. We're planning on putting up a fence later on in the summer, and we'll put the fence in front of this garden, so it won't be as much of an eye-sore.  To get to the garden, you'll have to go through a gate at the back of the yard.

These are two baby cherry trees.

This is our anniversary gift from Ty's parents. It's a Blooming Pear tree, and we can't wait for it to grow bigger and get its awesome shape and flowers!

And, since I'm not sure if I've ever shown pictures of our patio area and shed, I thought I'd include some of those as well. 

We had the patio put in 2 summers ago, and last year Ty and his dad built the brick path you see leading up to it. And don't be alarmed by the ugly grass-less patches in front of the patio. We're trying to get some grass to grow there!

I love our shed and think it's so stinking cute! We had it built last summer and my mom painted it. 

So that's the update as of right now. We (or should I say Ty) have a lot more plans for this space of ours in the coming years including more landscaping, the fence, a pergola over the patio, a hammock, etc. It certainly won't all happen this year, but I'll keep you updated as little things get finished here and there.

xoxo, wife.

    glad that you included the patio as I had never
    seen it. It all looks great.Keep up the good
    work. Can't wait to see the gardens in bloom!!

    1. Thanks! You'll have to come over for a fire this summer.
