A Backyard to Love

Now that we have a decent backyard, I'm not ashamed to post pictures of when it looked indecent. Our backyard was pretty wild from the time we moved in.

There were some pretty wild flowers that grew in the spring. It made a neat space for doing nature study. Harrison probably felt like he was in a jungle.

Winter time made it bleak and bare.

It's mowed down here, but it's all weed nubs.

And here's the mighty farmer plowing it up to sow grass seed.

After the last few good rains, we can see the fruit of our labor. Grass is finally growing! And we have a little fire pit in the middle.

Looks amazing! Hope you get enjoyment from the green grass.
