It seems that we always have an endless list of home and garden projects here at Love and Life at Leadora. Last weekend, MacGyver husband planted a new front yard lawn. Hopefully, in a week or so, you will see tiny grass sprouting. In the meantime, here's a sneak peak of my youngest daughter modeling the newly planted lawn!
While the front yard is looking nice, our backyard is a mess. We have big plans, but unfortunately we had to spend money removing a large pepper tree. It apparently had a fungus, which was causing it to rot from the inside out. Our Tom the Tree Guy told us it was a good thing that we had the tree removed because it probably would have crashed down, causing all sorts of damage.
Although it is always sad to see a big tree gone, we are excited about the new space! Someday soon we hope to plant a fruit orchard and build a chicken coop. Check out this chicken coop:http://heatherbullard.typepad.com/heather_bullard_collectio/2010/06/santa-barbara-chicken-coop.html Isn't it something else?
Besides dreaming of fanciful chicken coops, I've been working on new projects for the front porch. Stay tuned, I will be posting photos soon!
