It feels like since we moved here 3 years ago, we've constantly been doing projects. This year we are working on the side yard and backyard. Most recently we dug out a bunch of bushes and vines on our side yard by the driveway. We had to dig a few inches deep which was very rocky. Then we planted about 20 hydrangeas (which we found on Craigslist, what a deal!) and covered it with topsoil. They won't bloom this year, but hopefully next summer we'll have pretty purple and blue or pink hydrangeas.
It was a big project, but not half as much work as our next project...the deck. Stay tuned.
