Nurturing Nature, Keeping it Green

13 Jul

Here are the BEFORE pictures of the flower bed along the garage in the back yard:

Here is the backyard after we had two trees taken out (they were eaten by some kind of bug.)

My younger brother came over to help trim bushes and I let him use his creative design on these two boxwood bushes (this kind of bush, by the way, is one of my favorite.  These bushes smell good too!

A taste of why I like mowing – because I can SEE my progress as I go:

My dirty hands after hours working in the yard – PROGRESS!!!!  YEEEEHAAAWWW!!!!
