life on the outside...

Remember that terrible chain link fence I was complaining about a couple months back?  The one that kept me from ever going into my backyard?

With a lot of help from my mom and friends, I got all the trees and brush cleaned up so I could build my mini rock retaining wall and get everything planted. 

You'll remember me saying that half of this section of "yard" is owned by my neighbor (the house is currently empty and for sale), so I planted mostly perennial ground covers that will maintain themselves should the house ever sell to owners who don't maintain their yard. 

Ya know what I mean?

I have been working on a couple different outdoor projects using the 80 year old windows that were replaced a few years back.  I'll post them soon!
