Our Front Yard – 3 1/2 Weeks After Moving In

Here are some current pictures of our front yard!  I originally wanted us to find a house to buy in the winter, so I would have plenty of time to get settled and start on my spring planting.  Unfortunately, since things took longer than we expected in every way, I felt like I was on a mad rush to get things planted before the weather starts getting too hot.

It may seem strange to focus on planting the front yard when there is so much work to be done on the inside, but I had a lot of reasons for making the yard a priority. 🙂  For one thing, my severe dust allergies make it really difficult for me to be inside the house when there are things going on like heater repair, fireplace repair, and kitchen demolition.  I woke up a few mornings completely swollen, and my relief is found outside in the fresh air.  A lot of the projects inside the house are going to be more of a team effort between my husband and myself, and for the most part I handle all of the gardening on my own (unless there is something really major that I need his help with – like heavy duty digging).  We don’t want to start too many projects at once until he is eventually finished with the kitchen.  Plus, your front yard is your “face” to the neighborhood!

I will post updated pictures of the backyard soon…It is currently mid-project until the weather clears up a little!
