Here's some lovely before photos of our yard. We had actually done a little bit of work when this was taken and there aren't any true before pictures. It was scary. Even I didn't want to see it.
Hopefully there will be some after pictures soon!
This is part of our front yard. It's scary and has lots of honeysuckle, ivy and poison oak.
This is the side yard. It's also scary, but it has blackberry bushes and strawberries that have taken over.
This is more of the front yard. This was after we had already pulled out a TON of bamboo. Seriously - who plants bamboo any more?
And just for fun - here are some of my new hanging baskets I got yesterday. It's pretty much the only yard I'll have this summer so why not.
This one's my favorite. It's like a little mini petunia.
