Pumpkin Patch x 2

The girls and I took advantage of the gorgeous sunny weather and the early release day at school to fit our pumpkin patch trip in. I was a bit worried that we may not make it this year. Between soccer Saturdays, rainy days and regular old life getting in the way it almost passed us by. And what is better than one pumpkin patch visit? TWO pumpkin patches in the same day. We took a longer trek to visit a patch that had more activities for the kids to do which was lots of fun but the pumpkin selection was almost non-existent so we had to stop by our little local patch for a better selection of pumpkins. No more words needed, just plenty of photo-ops!

Front Yard Transformation

2 years ago

1 year ago

I can't say the transformation is complete but it is alot closer and to a stage that I can enjoy.  It took alot longer than anticipated but I am really happy with the outcome.  Still have lots of planting to do and adding lighting, moving the mailbox, removing cinderblocks, replacing front door and windows..... but you get the idea!  Here's more photos from the completed project.

I am sure most women wouldn't be too excited about rocks, but I have to say they make me so happy.  I LOVE these rocks like many women probably love their favorite clothing items.  They are exactly what I imagined and I think really add interest to the beds.  The rock in the front corner will eventually get a plaque with our address attached to it.
