    I posted this on The EasyGarden forum the other day...

    While looking for an old photo to show someone, I ran across this old photo of the front yard of my house from 2005.

    And then this one of my beginning of removing the lawn, putting in a pathway and just having garden beds.

    Putting in flagstone April 2007
    [​IMG]

    Here it is 5 months later, the dichondra has filled in between the flagstones, and I grew a Sunflower arch covered with Morning Glories that year.

    [​IMG]

    and the other day I posted what it looks like now...
    [​IMG]

    It sure has changed over the past five years.

    In my back garden things are always changing...
    One thing that had to go was a tree stump that had been in the way in the back garden for almost 20 years.

    [​IMG]
    Here is a photo of me with the saw after cutting it down, it took 2 whole hours to cut that stump off!!
    It was petrified!! The tree had been hit by lightning and that is what killed it.

    [​IMG]


    For a few years it had served as a the base for a scarecrow in the vegetable garden.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This last spring I planted some Morning gloriy seeds at the base of the stump and it looked pretty festive with flowers in it's hair for it's last photo with it's face on.

    [​IMG]


    I put the face on one of the big pine trees in the backyard
    [​IMG]

    Here is a close up of his new location, he looks happier I think...
    [​IMG]

    The day after putting the face on the pine tree, I was on the phone to my daughter, and I was telling her about moving the face, she said to take a picture for her, I got the camera out, and I noticed... his nose was now running!!

    [​IMG]

    Poor thing... maybe he caught a cold being up so high now.

    Hope this gives you some ideas.

    oh yes. and thank you for taking time to post. i like your yard very much. one of my favorite flowers is the morning glorie. i just love them. ive got 90 different seed packets for $5 about a month ago. 90% off. even though i dont have my own place and since im going to be breeding and selling my chickens all spring and summer i figured i would plant plant plant plant plant flowers all over the place around my coop and in the fall when im done selling eggs my chickens can free range again.! i love flowers.

    Quote:Be careful with Morning Glories... They are considered Poisonous. In fact, it is a good idea to look up which plants/flowers would be ok to plant near the chicken coop.

    They shouldn't kill your chickens, unless they eat ALOT, but I bet they get HIGH! [​IMG] [​IMG]
