Curb Appeal

After tons of mulch, scads of flowers and gallons of sweat, not to mention lots of greenbacks, we're pretty happy with how the outside of our house looks.  Curb appeal.

The azaleas are in bloom.


Our cherry tree looked really pretty with its pink blossoms, now starting to fall off.


We have a jelly bean shaped flower garden in the front yard.  We call it the Jelly Bean Garden.  How brilliant is that? ;c)


 A few finishing touches need to be done, but all in all, we're pleased with what we've gotten done outside.  Now if we can just get the inside to catch up...

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

    We are hoping all the real estate markets further north are picking up so folks can sell their homes and buy ours in the warm,sunny south;o))

  5. You have the nicest looking Lighthouse in the Jelly Bean Garden. I could never grow one that nice, but then again you really know how to work with one of those.
    I've got my fingers crossed about the housing market.

  6. Yes, those lighthouse seeds are very hard to come by. You usually find them at the top of most lighthouses, and that involves lots of climbing and no fear of heights...
