Our backyard has changed quite a bit this year..
When we got our new shed, we knew it was time to say goodbye to this rusty old guy. We found someone on Craigslist who was looking for scrap metal, and when he saw the metal shed, he said he was going to try and use it as a duck house! What fun!
Then we were left with this empty concrete slab, and thought it seemed like the perfect place for a pergola. We thought about building one ourselves, but then Lowe's was having a great sale and we couldn't pass this one up for 100 dollars off!
I've had fun planting all kinds of flowers around and training vines to grow up it.
I even made a few container gardens which I haven't really done before, it was so fun! But I can't stand to watch them die this winter so now I'm gonna have to try to find places for them in my house. -_-
We made this little flower pot fountain, and helped ourselves to a few plants out of my mom's pond.
I love those giant elephant ear plants! I really hope they survive the winter.
I am also loving our new fence. Now I don't have to worry about anybody looking at me when I go outside!
