Ladies, ladies, ladies. How our departure from one another was almost unbearable. Did we have a wonderful weekend? I certainly hope so. I am spending Monday morning with some serious allergies and being severely sore due to back breaking yard work yesterday. I know. The thought of me doing manual labor all day is absolutely unnatural and hilarious. Trust me. My neighbors thought so as well. On my last yard waste bag (one of about 32), I happened to find that the bottom of it was ripped. I then proceeded to kick the bag around the yard to show it what for. I am positive my neighbors were thoroughly entertained. Needless to say, yard work is not my jam. What is my jam, is the after product. Ooooh and ahhhh. That instant curb appeal that a little raking, mowing, mulching and planting gets you, almost makes all of the pain worth it. Almost. Let's look at some porches with some major curb appeal.
I mean magical, right? A little fern, some perfectly trimmed shrubbery and call it good. Many thanks to my mom and sister for toughing out me being completely clueless to anything landscape related. While everything is still not finished, it is off to a terrific start. Here is a little sneak peek.
