Well, as we ring in a new weekend tomorrow I am FINALLY posting pics of last weekend's improvements. First of all, the new light outside on the backporch. Subtle, but much needed.
Then our lovely swamp ground in the backyard. Every time it rains or whenever the AC kicks on for long periods of time (summer) we have a little swampy area. Conrad decided to make it a garden and at least utilize the wet ground, if we can. So ... garden before
and then garden after!
and then finally, I have no before pic, but Conrad decided to brick in the tree out front and give him fresh mulch. It is a tree he planted seven years ago. I watched this tree bend all the way down to the ground during Hurricane Ike, for nine hours straight as it held up to 90 mph winds. It's a hefty fellow! So Conrad just added some curb appeal for $30. Not a bad addition. I love how it all turned out!
