Busy Week

Spring has really sprung here - a little too early I'm thinking, but it has been gorgeous.  Tonight though thunderstorms are predicted and then the temperature is supposed to drop a lot.  It has been in the 80's and 90's all week and Monday night we had some hail.  It was short-lived and didn't do any damage, but just came out of nowhere.  The girls thought it was pretty fun!  Bad picture - but you can see the hail in the mulch.

After the short storm -

In case you're wondering, N has a play cat bed on her head like a hat! She is so funny.

A lot of work was done here this week.  DH and our son especially, but we all contributed some - cutting down trees, pulling up shrubs, planting new shrubs, and spreading mulch.

We still need a few more plants and later this month I'm going to fill in with some annuals, but it looks so much better!

That looks so much better! You should take a picture from the road so I can see the whole house with the new shrubs.

Okay I'll try to get a whole house picture. We think it looks a lot better too!
