There is finally light at the end of the renovation tunnel! This week, we've embarked on our last major project: transforming barren and neglected flowers beds into a lush cottage garden.
This very skilled landscaping crew put in over 80 shrubs and perennials for us today. And even though it may not be the best time of year to plant, lots of irrigation will ensure that everything will thrive.
A couple of things were unearthed while the guys were digging: an old red Matchbox car and a teeny tiny real live toad, no bigger than an inch long. A friend for Spike perhaps? No way; he would eat the little guy.
Stay tuned! Once everything is mulched and looking extra pretty, I'll be sure to share more pics of our lovely new garden with you.
