Testing out my green thumb...

We took full advantage of the spring weather this weekend, and worked on getting our yard into shape. We don't really have any money in our budget to actually buy stuff for our yard, so we've mostly been using what we have, and what plants we can get from other people.
Our yard wasn't horrible to begin with, it has really nice thick grass..but we have a few areas that are patchy, unlevel, or just messy looking from all of the demolition we've done and the nutshells the squirrels leave behind.
Here is a shot from last May:
Since then we have cleaned off the sidewalk, planted some hostas and peonies, and made a small patio out of the bricks from our chimney. We plan on expanding the patio eventually, it's only big enough for our grill right now, but it's a start.

Our yard also had a lot of stones and cement blocks sitting around, and since I didn't know what else to do with them, we decided to push them all together and make a little herb garden.

Next on the agenda, rescreening and clearing off the back porch. Fun Fun!
Needless to say, all of this outdoor work has taken a toll on my housework, and I think I'll be stuck inside for the next couple of days. yuck.
