FINALLY!!!!! Some Pictures!

Better late than never they say. This is a new picture of the front. We still are waiting "patiently" I might add, for our dozer guy to come so we can sow our grass seed. It's almost getting too late.

After the sidewalk got put in, I was able to plant my first tree. This is a coral bark maple. You can barely see it, but the bark is red. I love it. It's of the Japanese Maple family. It will only get about 15' tall and 15-18' wide so it will fill in nicely and block the cars that sit by the garage eventually. I have a Japanese Maple that goes on the opposite end of the house when we get the yard work done.

This is my first attempt at landscaping. I had bought all this compost, peat moss, sand, and mulch for the front of the house. The dirt is mainly clay so I had to add a lot of amendments to it to get something to grow. I ended up using all I bought, just in this one spot. I planted my mums, daffodil bulbs, hostas, Dogwood shrubs, phlox, and hydrangea. I have a lot more to plant, but I'm waiting to get the other side ready so I can see what I want to use and where. I just had to get something in the ground so I stuck this stuff here.This is the sidewalk. We are so glad to finally get it in. Our contractor did a really good job with it. I love the part where it widens and splits. I couldn't wrap my mind around how he was telling me it was going to look. I love it though.

Well, I haven't done much decorating. This is our bedroom. I'm looking for a new bed. I found pieces to the one I think I want, but the rest of it is on order so I'm waiting for it to come in to see if I like it. I did manage to get a picture or two on the wall in the kitchen.
Of course, the most important things got put up first. All our animals have found their new home in the den. We have four deer and a turkey. It's wild kingdom.
The kids love the game area. We have some rearranging to do, but for now it's fine.
I know the pictures are dark. I need a new camera (hint if anyone talks to Kenny around Christmas or March birthday season).
