My daughter completed her garden entryway project yesterday. When you are the mother of a baby, you have to work fast, and she did. It was important to her that she shovel all the mulch and do the biggest portion of the work, so I got the fun jobs of playing with my grandson and planting the pansies when he took a nap. She did all the rest.
It is such a sense of accomplishment when you create an idea in your mind and are able to bring it to fruition. She took her back entryway from here…
It is amazing that this is the same area. While my son-in-law was attempting to cut out the rest of the old shrub stump, his chainsaw broke. I don’t think I have ever completed a project without something of this nature happening to slow me down. It sure does teach patience and anger control to deal with these things, but since Ryan is a master at fixing broken machinery, he will have it fixed soon and the rest of the shrub removed.
Below are pictures of the other areas where she mulched and added flowers.
It is amazing what can be done with initiative, imagination, hard work, and not too much money spent. My daughter is now dreaming and planning for landscaping her front yard. The possibilities are endless as she considers her canvas (yard), palette of colors, and gets out her artists supplies (garden tools) to complete a masterpiece.
