Landscaping

In addition to typical housework, I spend alot of time outdoors with my flower beds and landscaping. I love this part - kind of a stress relief for me - especially now since hubby can't go to work for the next 2 weeks. When I get tired of him, I can just go outside. Here are some pics of my landscaping, nothing too extravagant, but I am proud. Oh yeah, and all the rock you see in the pics - I did all of that one 50lb bag at a time. I'll post some before pics of that project later in another post; completely forgotten I hadn't shared that project yet. Warning - picture overload!

there are two of these whisky barrell planters that edge where we park our vehicles...
this is across the back - a path leading from one porch to another...

the new covered patio at our master bedroom sliding glass door...
