Our plot of land looks so loooooong. It’s 37′-6″ x 125″, and yes my drawing is to scale. :)
I did a bit of yard work during the day. My stepmom gave me four big yuccas and a bunch of orange daylillies. They aren’t my favorite plants, but they were free! I put the yuccas symmetrically in the big dirt patch / main garden area out front. I think they could look nice mixed in the middle of other plants. The day lillies might go along the garage in the back (just past the bottom edge of my drawing).
I went to a couple of nurseries today. Everything is so expensive! Very pretty, but expensive. I saw a nice Eastern Redbud tree for $300. They’re only $30 at Home Depot, but those are much smaller. I also saw a really pretty magnolia for $700, but we won’t be buying that.
I did go back to buy some of the little flowers that I liked. They were called “Wee Willy”! I put them in a couple of little pots.
We’re having a party for Brandon in a couple of weeks (he’s turning 30), so hopefully the yard will look a little better by then. We have no patio and no furniture back there, but I think I can pull it together. We can stick our old dining room chairs out there for the day and some folding tables will look just fine under tablecloths. I’m actually looking forward to transforming the space, even though it won’t be close to finished.
