When we moved into our house last summer, I decided we would ignore the yard for the first year to focus on the sprucing up the inside. Sadly, this means our yard looks kind of poopy. I feel sorry for our neighbors who have to look at our yard. I feel sorry for the previous owners because I think I've killed most of the plants they spent so much time cultivating. (Although I was planning on digging them up and doing something different anyways.)
We have plans to clean it up this spring. Dig up some stuff, plant some stuff. Lee has declared war on the crab grass and will not rest (well, I'm sure he'll rest a bit) until it is all gone. I'm hoping to have an herb garden and maybe some berry bushes but I've heard those are tricksy.
But despite the way we've let the yard run amok, some flowers have managed to pop up. I have no idea what they are, but they're pretty and bring a smile to my face. Welcome Spring!
