Outdoor Tour

Come along with me on a tour of our yard.

{Pretend our grass is green and lush. We're a little short on the rain around here.}

Mitch's grandfather built this little playhouse. It's even wired for electricity which hopefully one day we'll hook up. It functions as my potting shed since we already had a playhouse for the boys. This little guy was destined for the burn pile until we intervened. Now he's right where he belongs, adding scute (super + cute, if you're new to my blog) character to our yard.

These sunflowers just popped up on their own this year. What a pleasant surprise! 

A  friend and I planted this hedge shortly before I moved into the house. It gives lots of privacy where there was none prior.

We planted some peas here along with some lettuce (which we didn't eat--I think I waited too long to harvest.) And sprinkled some flowers in there too.

You can read more about our shed transformation here.

Side of the house garden. I think I'm finally pleased with how it looks. For now, at least!

Mitch recently installed this Ikea light and I couldn't be happier with it. Granted, it does say on the package "Not intended for outdoor use" but I figure I'll spray it with Rustoleum paint if it starts to rust. I'm not super concerned about it. He also put it on a dimmer switch which is sa-weet at night.

I would have shown ya the front of the house, but we have another transformation forth-coming. And I'm so pumped about it! Eek! Didn't want to spoil it for ya's:)

This is the view from under Wally (the walnut tree) where I typically sit and watch the boys, eat watermelon, or just chill. 

Hope you enjoyed the tour!


  1. Oh wow, I love your garden, you must spend alot time on it and in it. The last house we had was a gardening paradise and I spent an enormous amount of time in it. It was lovely. We've been in this home about 4 years and the garden's pretty much crap! That hedge you put in is gorgeous, how long did it take to get that tall?

  2. You have a beautiful outdoor space. I love the 2 playhouses they are scute for sure. I hope we can have one someday. The light on a dimmer is a great idea, I would have never thought of that. It is one of my favorite lights.

  3. Debe tener en cuenta que no todos los bolsos baratos disponibles en el mercado están hechos con material de la mejor calidad.
