Do you ever feel like you have a never-ending list of projects and things to check off? Do you love yard work? How about springtime cleanup? I do enjoy working outside and I am so happy that our weather has finally warmed up a bit. The sunshine we had last weekend was definitely beckoning to me. So, my husband and I began the process of yard clean up and “beautification.” I love a pretty yard and so enjoy making my outdoors just that. Right now, I feel very overwhelmed with the amount of yard work that I need to do and it’s not very pretty!
Since the new build of our home, we’ve had to start many yard projects from scratch. I have so many projects on my list right now… I am working on notching one off at a time…
Sidewalks need poured; flower beds reestablished, pathways and pavers laid, plants and shrubs planted, new sod, river rock cleanup, and the list continues. Sigh….
This little bush is blooming right now. I’m not quite sure what it is, but I was told that it was a type of dogwood. The flower does resemble a dogwood. It was given to me as a small shrub in a coffee can.
Here is just a view of the springtime cleanup around this outfit.
When I saw that this shrub was blooming this morning, it made my heart happy.
This little view stirred the yard work juices. When something blooms around here, I’m all about it!
If this is a dogwood, it doesn’t have much in the way of leaves or greenery. Just pretty white blooms with a hint of pink. And…it is a quick bloomer.
River Rock Cleanup & Inspiration
This is my goal for this year. To reestablish a border with the river rock and grass.
Shrubs planted around the house in flower beds.
Since I am a bit of a minimalist. Keeping things neat and tidy is my motto!
This little dogwood has been a bit of a highlight. I’ll keep scratching away at my list, hoping to keep the hubby engaged and the deer at bay. Oh yea, forgot to tell you that I have those too, and they love to eat anything that blooms around here.
I hope you enjoyed a pretty dogwood and some yardie randomness today. Thanks for stopping by. If you have any yard advice, I’m all ears.
