Manual Labor

Call us crazy, but this is one reason we were so excited to get a house. A little manual labor does the body good. Believe me, lots of planning, window shopping, more planning some more looking and a little more planning went into the landscaping in our front yard and now we are nearly complete. A few of the bushes and grasses we wanted had to be ordered in, but you will get the general idea. Now I just have to be patient while my little plants grow.Here is the "Before"
And here is the "after" 7,000 lbs of rock later...
After much begging and pleading and convincing, I finally got my Camperdown Elm tree. Is it seriously not the cutest tree!
