Before & After - Front Yard

Before = What a mess!  
Laura and I built a retaining wall a few weekends ago and we needed Mother Nature to cooperate so that we could have some dirt delivered.  As you can see from the first picture, the dirt finally made it.  After several trips with the wheelbarrow to replenish the dirt in the raised vegetable garden beds and some of the other landscaping we able to get to focus our attention on the intended project in the front yard.

 After = Much better.
  From the picture you can see we were able to put the wall back together after the dirt hauling delivery truck came.  We raised the lilac bush that Chris and Ken gave us about 10 inches.  The landscaping bed now goes all the way back to the flowering crab apple tree Sarah and Jed bought us last summer.  Just in front of the tree is the wagon wheel that Mom & Dad gave us for Christmas.  Nice touch!  Somewhere in there is a yucca that we stole from Jane, although I doubt that she misses it.  Thanks to all that have contributed to giving our home a little more curb-side appeal!

And to all of you mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day!  I love you, Mom!
