We have a tiny back yard (not at ALL like the farm where I used to live!). It's been quite an adjustment. Not only is it tiny, it was, um....sad.
Yeah. That sad. And this sad....
We moved into this house on Labor Day weekend of 2010. By the time we got settled in (new house, new state!), "yard season" was over. Though I was able to do a little Fall gardening, I knew I had to wait till Spring to really get in there and get my hands dirty. By Winter's end, I was so terribly tired of gazing out into my sad little yard.
I am happy to report, though, that a wind of change has blown in.
Though most of my focus has been on building, planting, and tending to my raised beds, I've made some time to bring some life into the backyard.
We are working on it....definitely getting better! Amos of course refused to opt out of the shot.
I would love to get some more outdoor furniture to make everything a little more "homey." Our chairs are mismatched. I'd like to get an entire matching dining set, like this Oxford Garden dining set, or an outdoor sofa. Our friends have one, and it's so fun to be leisurely outside while sitting on it! Britt fancies himself to be the host with the most, so he might go for something more along the lines of a Bamboo Tiki bar.
Does anyone else find themselves wanting to spend all their time out in the yard? And does Spring, therefore, seem to be a time when y'all want to spend all kinds of money?? It is for me! I need to put some of these cats to work!
