I have a few more updates to share on the progress of my backyard. I have my seating arrangements all taken care of thanks to both Lowe’s and IKEA. I have added a few new plants and I am still monitoring the plants I have already planted. We aereted the yard and added fertilizer and seed right before a rain storm to get the best effects. The results are looking pretty good.
The Hydrangeas are doing well. I planted four plants and there is only one I’m concerned about at the moment. Otherwise they have little green buds appearing on their tiny stems. Here’s one of the Hydrangeas below.
I also added 2 potted plants to my deck for decoration and to enhance the visual around the edge of the deck. I planted a pink lemon tree and a raspberry bush. My husband wanted something we could pick and eat in the yard. Raspberries are so refreshing that it was an easy choice.
I have also had a few surprises popping up all over the yard. My Mom liked to say they are God’s little gift to the yard. I really loved the idea of that! I haven’t identified these plants yet and if you know what they are I’d love to know! Until then I hope you enjoy these pictures! Soon I will be able to post a picture of the entire backyard once everything is in bloom!
