This is the view from the street of the front of our house.
View from garage - we took out my pear tree that died last year :( But we got to add a Variegated Maple which I LOVE and a raised bed. I've always wanted to grow tulips, so I'm going to plant bulbs in there in the fall!
This is the back corner of the house.
This area of the yard is the lowest so after heavy rain or in the spring when the snow melts, this back corner gets flooded. So we put plants and trees that tolerate being very wet back here. I call it my "Swamp", but my husband says I should call it a "Rain Garden" because that sounds better. It also defines our property line somewhat and gives us a bit a of privacy from our neighbors.
Have a great week everyone! Hope to have vacation pics for you when we get back from Chicago!
