With all the make-overs the inside of our house has been getting lately, it was about time our yard got some attention too! A friend of mine from work was re-landscaping her yard and wanted to start all over. So she had some trees to get rid of which we gladly took off her hands.
Here is the 'before' picture of our backyard (the patches of grass that you can see are from toys and picnic tables that I moved out of the way to make for a cleaner picture).
And here is the 'half-way' picture after the landscaper guys came to dig the holes...
I absolutely L-O-V-E having trees in my yard. The really tall one is an apple tree (although apparantly it could take a couple of years after re-planting it for it to produce apples again) and the ones in the back are obviously spruce trees. Yes, there are two back there -- but for some reason they put the smaller tree behind the taller tree...oh well. We weren't around this weekend to supervise (we were visiting Les' brother and sister-in-law, Valleygirl in case you were wondering why I had vanished from blog-world this weekend), so this is how it is.
I especially can't wait for the next snowfall to see the beautiful white snow resting on my Christmas trees!! (and yes, you can be sure I'll take pictures)
