Hi and this is my first time to participate. I moved to my cottage home 11 years ago. The majority of the yard is in the front and side of the house. There was one small tree that had to be taken out because it was plumbing invasive. It was a blank slate. Everything that has been planted has been since then; and I have added lots of yard art from thrifty sources like garage sales, thrift stores and found freebies. I change things out as they become too weatherized. A few years ago, I went "green" or grass less. It saves on water and labor. Today, I am sharing some shots from this spring. I live in southern California and I am happy that I can garden virtually all year. It is very peaceful; and my pets like it when I garden.
THANK YOU Cindy for hosting this opportunity for everyone to share. I love other people's creativity.
