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.
