First, my deepest appreciation for those who gave their lives for our country and for those who are still serving it!
Comparing last Memorial Day to this almost is depressing. However, I do feel that there are many things that are vast improvements. The big difference is the lack of maintenance because of the backyard project.
|Split in the driveway leading to the house. Last year I planted wildflowers which was a weedy mess.|
|Replaced with a fountain an mulch. Much better. |

Backyard last year. Pool was cleaner.
Massive rose garden in progress
Doesn't look better but it will.
Front bed last year
Azaleas had grown but looks weedier..this is getting discouraging
Creek last year
Creek this year. Grass had died and haven't been grooming as much because of other projects
Wildflowers and sunflowers in front field last year
Planted arches this year.
I figured out the difference. The rye grass has died and since we have been lacking rain greatly, the new grass has not come in. Opting not to have one more task, I haven't watered the lawn
