I finally got around to photographing the backyard! Besides a few finishing things on my husband's to-do list, it's pretty much done! Hooray.
It's such an improvement from the boring box of a
backyard we had before, now it's a pretty box. It's so nice to sit outside (cold bevvy in hand, of course)
and actually see and hear a bit of life! Who knew I'd notice something so
small as the rustling of the leaves. It's got a bit of filling in to do, but I'm so happy with how it turned out. I really have to give most of the credit to my husband who planned and executed everything - high five Mikey! He even thought ahead and designed the curve so that we can perfectly fit a round patio in there one day.
Here's a reminder of the before (I like how dramatic it is with the dead spring grass):
And of course, the backyard wouldn't be complete if I didn't show my favourite spot to sit and take it all in. A few shots of the deck*...
*full disclosure: these deck shots are actually from last summer. It looks exactly the same so I didn't think it was worth re-shooting and well, I'm lazy ;)
What do you think?
