Yard Work

I've been really busy. Trying to get way too many things done before it gets scorching hot. One of the things we have been working on is the back yard. Seems likes there's always something to do with yard work.
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. 
So those are some of the things I've been busy with. Along with redoing my sewing room. A complete update on that coming soon. Lots of changes in that room. Got the bubblers in and now it's too hot to plant anything else this summer. So my flower beds are kind of bare. There's always next summer. Have a great week.
Hugs, Amanda

Hi Amanda, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I love meeting new bloggers. Your grape vine is looking very full and heavy with fruit! I like your patio area and it looks like a nice spot to enjoy the roses some day. Blessings, Pamela
