Tour of the Yard

Here is our front yard, looking much different than it did when we saw the house in February!

front-of-houseIt’s a little hard to convey just how many leaves we had in the flower beds, along the sides of the yard, by the side of the house, and in just about every nook and cranny possible.  We think it was an entire season’s worth, which I cleared in two days –and I didn’t even get to them all!  Bee had to make another compost bin, where we smashed down as many as possible.  I swear, this photo still doesn’t do it justice:
