A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine brought over some cactus clippings from her yard so that we could get a start on our desert landscaping in the backyard. This is just the beginning, next we are going to be putting in a couple trees. We (my husband and I) have decided to do everything by ourselves, for now, to save some money. Plus we have really enjoyed working on the yard together. LOL, pulling weeds and planting cactus has been the extent of our “working on the yard” so far.
Anyway, enjoy the pictures and I will keep you updated as they grow and as we continue to add things to the backyard.
Below is a picture of our cat taking a dirt bath in one of the flower pots that luckily doesn’t have anything in it right now. She just loves to roll around in this pot so I don’t think I will be planting anything in it for a while.
I bought myself a birthday gift last week, a new plant for the living room. This beautiful spider plant had a bunch of babies on it when I got her. So, I will be able to have quite a few more plants around the house as soon as these ones start rooting and I can plant them in pots. She fills up this corner just perfect.
I finally finished crocheting the Valence for the kitchen window and hung it up this past weekend. I am now working on crocheting the cafe curtains to match. I have temporary ones hung up for now as you can see in the picture.
Oh, one other thing that my husband has been working on the last couple days is painting the upstairs bedrooms. When he is all done I will post pictures of them too.
Well I hope that everyone has a wonderful day. Be sure to treat yourself today, you deserve something just for you, even if it is just 10 minutes of meditation.
