When we started our front yard remodel in 2010 I had no idea how much joy this space was going to bring to our lives. Each week it is a new palette of colors. The plants are really filling in this spring and new critters are moving in as well. Here are some glimpses into our garden and then a nature journal entry tutorial for you to give a try.
|Butterfly bushes, Yarrow, and Lavender – April 2012
Lavender is the main blooming plant on display right now. The bees love it and so do we!
This is something new this week….a critter is making a home under my big rock! They have pulled the landscape material back and exposed a little space to hide in right there alongside my front path. I wonder who it is?
I still really enjoy watching our butterfly “fly” around in the breeze. It adds a little bit of whimsy to our front yard.
