I'm so excited y'all!
We started a new project a few days ago...well actually two projects. :)
In our backyard we put in the beginnings of a butterfly garden.
The plants were carefully chosen to fit a smallish space and to be pleasing to the butterflies.
We also have milkweed too which is very important but let me be honest...
it's a little too weedy for my perfectionist heart and I'm going to plant it in the greenbelt behind
our house. Milkweed is the habitat and food source of monarch butterflies.
My dad and hubby made short order of this project which was quite amazing.
Those rocks you see weighed about 80 lbs. each from the stone yard and had to be sawed and hammered to make smaller pieces. They did all of that!
The three bushes in the back of the photo were again chosen for the butterflies and hummingbirds too. They are Rose Creek Abelias.
The whole bed is about 20 feet long and 4 feet deep. It's small but mighty!
Now let's peek over in another part of the yard...
can you see the paint on the ground?
We are building another pond!!!
Squeal! I'm so happy I can't even begin to put this into words.
We will be working with the nice people at Smartpond on this project to show you the steps
to completing a pond in your yard as a DIY project. :)
That's the update here. Things are green and growing.
What projects do you have at your house?
