Curb Appeal from any Angle

How does the house look now?  We were so excited to see what would grow this spring and summer season since this is the first year in our house.  We were excited to be able to get rid of some plants and add some others, but not too many.  We want to see what we've got.

We weeded the heck out of the front garden and used black mulch.  That's our favorite and it contrasts nicely with the red barn to the left and the grey house.

Our side porch with awesome hanging baskets from Pleasant Valley Greenhouse.  We redid the plants around the lightpost.

Lowes had a sale on heather plants.  We don't even really know what they are, but they look nice - the little purple/pink bushes in the front.

I like to walk in the backyard which is up a pretty steep hill.  This is the view from the top of that hill looking down at our barns.
I absolutely love rural living.  I feel as if we have certainly found our home.  I love waking up in the morning and enjoying the backyard or the side porch.  I also enjoy coming home from work and going into the garden, or for a nice walk up the hill.  Idyllic, to be sure.
