What I Did With A Tiny Back Yard

Well, Hello!
I am happy you stopped by.

I have been working in my yard
on and off for several weeks.  As I explained
in a previous post, it has constantly rained
seriously for several months. 
Very unusual for where I live.
Believe me I am not complaining.  I believe
rain is a blessing. 

None the less I am happy to finally be able
to do some planting and fussing in my
Tiny Back Yard.

I did need some help. . . I wanted to have a gravel path 
and my flowerbeds needed fresh dirt and I wanted them wider.
I can no longer do the "hard work." So I had a little
muscle help from a handyman. I really appreciate
the help and getting it done in a timely manner.

I still need to paint my shed.  It isn't a "She Shed!"
It is a "Working Shed,"  All of my pots and garden art goes
in the shed after late September.
It is part of the tiny yard and I like it to be looking
"pretty" so it needs to be freshened up.
Hopefully I will be able to get to it soon.

I now have another project I am working on.  
I can't wait to get it finished and show it to you.

Just look at this beautiful flower!
I don't remember the name of it, but I do
remember it is a hardy plant and drought resistant.
Which is always a plus when living in Utah.
It is actually a ground cover but
I have it in a pot.  In the fall or next spring
I will transplant it from the pot to the ground.
Isn't it beautiful?

Little Teddy photo bombed several times. Look at his little front leg.
  He is in a pose.. . . Oh what a Character he is.  
And I love him and his brother
Cash to pieces.  Cash is more obedient and shy,
I couldn't get a picture of him.

Teddy is just like my children.
He does not "mind" me.
He ignores my commands.
Why not?  Like I said just like my children.
So stinkin cute, and I love them!

Weather permitting I will have the rest of my Tiny Yard
completed in the next couple of days.
Like I said I hope to show you the project I am working on.
I hope it turns out how I have it in my mind.

Be sure to come back . . .There's more to come!

  1. Karie,
    From one small yard owner to another, I LOVE it!! I too call my yard a postage stamp size yard....I have not been able to get out in the back yard to do more clean up and plant my pots of annuals. Hopefully, this weekend I will get out there. We have had so much rain here that we are ahead of last year's rainfall already which was our wettest yard on record...Looking forward to seeing the rest of your yard....

  2. Karie,
