Needless to say, we made quite a few changes.
Last year I planted a bunch of flowers only to realize this year that they were all annuals. This year I made sure that I only bought perennials and have planted a little flower garden in the front. I'm excited for everything to grow nice and big and bloom.
My first poppy bloomed.
Our big project this summer is working on the backyard. We are in the process of cutting down a large tree to clear space and allow sun for fruit trees.
