Working outside!

This weekend we've been busy outside, it was the first nice weekend, temperatures were not too high, so very nice to do something. Well, Henk did all the work, I went with him to buy plants and decorative stones to brighten up the outside space a bit!

In the front yard we have a Maple tree, and as we are completely re-decorating outside, (it's all soil now, we're going to seed new grass!) we thought it would be nice to make a circle around the tree. So we bought some scalloped curved stones and..... this is the result!

Mom, look, we've changed the stones next to the garage too, don't you like these a lot better? We do!

We got some perannials too, like this Korean Dwarf Lilac, which grows till about 1,5 metres!

More plants for on the deck, we filled up the pots we had outside, bought a new hanging basket too, and put one at the front of the house which looks very nice!

Marloes is doing co-op at the moment and has to make a project about her work. What's better than a scrapbook if you've got a mom with lots of supplies! So we decided to work on it on the deck, really nice, and we even got sunburned....... not so nice!

And, of course, with the two girls outside,I had to have some new photos of them together! This is one of them, I made more, but...... you have to wait to see those, I ordered them and am planning to make a layout with those photos. Got it all in my head, has to be put on paper now..... oops........
