We’ve spent the last few days working on our front yard. The hot, hot Southwestern summer weather is approaching us quickly. So we scraped off the ugly green fish tank rock and had dirt brought in for our new low-maintenance desert landscape. A drip irrigation system has been put down and we have plants all ready for planting. We had planted two young mesquite trees last year when we moved in to help with shading and cooling of our house. They still have lots of growing to do.
The sad part will be breaking the news to out little guys that the dirt is really not for a giant sand box in the front yard (although a good idea for the back). They have really been enjoying the sandy dirt with no shoes and free toes.
I am also doing stuff around the house too. A little here and a little there. It should get finished up, eventually.
