We started with this big pile of left over dirt (from leveling the yard last summer)(see here) on the small patio (that's what I call this large piece of concrete). I think hubby put it off so long because he thought it would be such a chore. Only took about an hour and a half.
One lonely rose bush. This whole area will eventually be a small rose garden. Bought the bush then realized we still had bubbler sprinklers to add. So didn't buy anymore rose bushes. This fall I will though.
Now looks like this! Yeah, no more dirt pile.
Morning glories will grow just about anywhere if left unattended. I just had to snap this picture before we cleaned this corner out.
Cleaned the morning glories out for this, a small garden with 3 heirloom tomatoes, a pepper plant and an eggplant. Yum!
The grape is doing splendid this year. It's so loaded with fruit. Glad the carpenter made this extra strong.
