Yard work is hard work

This past Sunday Matt & I spent a long hard day whipping our yard into shape. Ours is a big chore each year because we have kinda conjured up landscaping ourselves out of nothing. We went to Lowe's and dropped a pretty penny which we usually call part of my early Birthday! ha
I was so sore from planting, digging and hauling crap all day!!!! But the results speak for themselves!
We did about 10 pots all around the backyard and some up front....
I love the elephant ears and we went thru 4 bags of black mulch....which may I add does stain your hands!
Backyard..............
Look at this cute table stuff I got at Hobby Lobby half off!!! I wanted to have lunch outside today but the wind is killing me!
I got us a new umbrella because our old red one was more a shade of salmon now! gross!
Our humble front yard..............
And I got these super cute pots at the Dollar Store and they look great on our front porch!
Well the hard work did pay off and now I hope everything lives and we can keep it up!!! Did you work in your yard already??

So last week you inspired me to stop by my local dollar store - you must have the nieman marcus of dollar stores because mine was full of rubbish! Heh - that didn't stop my from walking away with $16 worth of rubbish, but still... :)

Your yard looks gorgeous btw! I want to get into gardening, but I just know as soon as I move my first trowel of dirt I'll be bombarded by a herd of spiders

Your yard looks great!! I'm ready to get my yard into shape!! I just hate how it affects my allergies!

The flowers are beautiful! We haven't done yard work yet, but we have plans to. Our house looks pitiful from the street, but the yard has not been a priority for several years now. Hopefully, this is the year. I need some color.
