No, not like that!
I returned from a business trip this weekend to these beauties in our backyard:
I mean, how GORGEOUS is our backyard becoming?
It’s ridiculous when you realize it used to look like this:
We’ve been wanting to put roses in our planter, but had to wait until the right time of year. This is it. Mr. Dreamer took full advantage of his bachelor-Saturday and planted 10 rose bushes.
And he also planted this:
An avocado tree! Holy guacamole – how fun is that?!
In an effort to de-blah the white walls of the fence in our yard – he’s also been hard at work planting some desert favorites along the walls:
Alternating agave and torch bougainvillea. Purrrrdy!
With the grass now finally in – thanks to some sod and overseeding for winter – it’s finally all coming together.
There is one last little “blah” area. See it there in the back, left corner?
Well, the big bougainviallea is saying adios and we’re putting in some EXCITING new additions. They’ve been ordered and delivery scheduled the week of Thanksgiving – so stay tuned for that.
You’ll have to wait longer to see all of those rocks disappear. We’re “holding” that area for a pool. However, that is years of dreaming away. For now, it will stay a blank slate – with one new fun addition coming soon… that may or may not increase our ability to enjoy smores. More later…
