A few days ago we closed on our new house. Now the fun begins to turn it into a home. We won't be moving in until mid-January because of inside renovations.
The house sits on an acre of land, and there is a lot of lawn which I realize is a no-no for many gardeners. We are supposed to be growing meadows to support wildlife. But I love the spacious, open feeling of the property. We do have woods behind us that I hear have resident foxes and many deer. There is a country feeling to the neighborhood. A few weeks ago I took the following photos of some of the bushes and trees that are growing in the yard.

This is about half of what is growing in the yard. I don't believe there are any perennials except around the cable box in a front corner of the yard. I will be planting about 150 bulbs this holiday weekend. A Happy Thanksgiving to all.
