Planting Shrubs

Yesterday Dan, Caleb and I plated some shrubs in our back patio flower bed. I am sure that most of you know that our house has been a work in progress for the past 4 years and we are just now getting around to putting some greenery outside and adding some curb appeal. The sad part about it is that Dan is a lisenced landscape architect now and we don't even have the yard to show it! Dan has come up with some beautiful plans though and I am sure that within the next few years our yard will look spectacular!

Caleb really enjoyed working in the yard. He would take his bucket and fill it with dirt and then go and toss it in the flower bed. When we had everything finished he watered the plants...he was filthy and wet by the time we got done. All he wanted to do when we got inside was to get under the covers on the couch and get "nice and cozy" as he calls it!
Dan is also building a fence on the side of our patio to match the one that he built the first summer that we were here. This is to keep Chance from digging up all the flowers and shrubs that we will plant and to also give us an area to enjoy without having mud all over the place since Chance likes to dig holes in our clay dirt.
