it has begun...

We have finally started the long process of landscaping our front yard. Last week we planted a few shrubs and bushes in front of our front window and along the driveway. Now they are just tiny green poofs surrounded by dirt, but soon they will be flourishing bounds of greenery. I am hoping. This HOT weather is doing nothing for their complexion, but we diligently look after them. Next step is picking out a medium sized shade tree that doesnt cost a fortune and planting flowers when the weather cools off. But for now, we are enjoying our little patches of green.

Yeah for an update!!!

And for inexpensive trees and shrubs, you HAVE to go out to this landscaping place out in Arvin, just off of the freeway. Seriously.... Like a quarter of the price of anywhere else we went. They don't take charge cards which stunk because then we had to cruise all over looking for an ATM, but it was SO worth it when we came home with 3 nice sized trees and 22 plants for like $250!!!
