Backyard Landscaping

Well, it was a really beautiful day yesterday, so I thought I would go out and finally take some picture of all our (Nick's) hard work in the backyard yard!

Here is the new path that nick put in that leads from the driveway to the back yard.Then along that right side fence we have a bed of wild flowers and zanias

The back right corner was always a really shady spot where we could never really get grass to grow, so Nick turned it in to a new bed.This will be easier to see when everything really grows in, but these are our fruit and vegetable beds. We are growing green, yellow and banana peppers, carrots, onions, broccoli, watermelon, green beans, squash, pumpkins and strawberries. We will see if we can handle all that...The strawberries are nearly ready to be picked...Nick built the handy little cover to keep all the birds out of the strawberry bed. Last year they took them all...And here is the new patio that Nick put in. We love it.These are a couple of new beds he put in around the new patioWe got these rose begonia's and I just love them...After all the work in the yard was done, we went out to dinner with Ryan and Arielle and Boo and Chris. Ryan and Arielle came over after dinner for some Mario cart on the Wii. Nick was a happy guy!
