back yard re-do

when we first moved into our townhouse the owner told us we could do whatever we wanted with the backyard. of course we didn’t want to spend a fortune making someone else’s backyard a paradise but while we live here we want to be comfortable. will and i have always really enjoyed working in the yard (those of you who ever came to my house in sparks know how much fun we had in that back yard with our pond and wild flower garden).

so while i was away this summer will started working on the grass that the dogs have so lovingly destroyed with their passion for chasing squirrels. when i came home we went to walmart (i know i said it, i went to walmart) and home depot to buy some plants-they were half off because it was the end of the season!!! go me!!! we bought some top soil and got to work. i planted a bunch of smaller perenials and then a few larger perennials, like two butterfly bushes and some azelas.

br /we also got a playhouse for ainsleigh to enjoy the backyard, so far she has already invited two friends into her house and has another one planning to play on sunday. she is very excited to show off her new /pso onto the pics!
