Welcome to the Jungle



As we speak, at 6:00 in the morning on what promises to be a gorgeous Sunday, I've had 3 aspirin for breakfast. I'm a 49 year old walking bundle of sore muscles. And I've inflicted this on everyone in my family.

We have done the Spring Weeding.
The 10 foot long raised bed is cleared and fertilized.
The backyard is cleared. This is a During photo. There are no Before photos. Why? Because I have no intention of letting any of you know just how white trash Casa de Redneck looked. Take a look at the debris piles and feel free to judge.

There's a patio back here, and I intend to use it now that the kids are older and need a little space. You'll have photos tomorrow of the new backyard lounge.
For now, check out the focal point of the area, this amazing old tree...
...which will be the star of the landscaping here.
It's a good 70 feet tall, and Kelly and Heather can tell you, for a South Florida tree, that's ENORMOUS. You'll get a better sense of how huge it is tomorrow, I promise.

That tree is amazing and awe inspiring!! I'm in love and was hoping it would be the focal point, what could compete with that, really? Those roots are natural architecture for your yard.
So excited to see the finished lounge (lucky kids!!)

You need some time in a hot tub to soothe those aching muscles.

We have the big 20th anniversary this June, and I was thinking of asking for a hot tub. I love them! And I'm starting to think you and I are sharing a brainwave.

It's like we share one brain (quick..where's that quote from,,,think 8o's tv show). hehe.
We celebrated our 20 yr anniversary in September. I'd say it definitely warrants a hot tub!!!
