A few more pictures

Wanted to share a picture of the front of the house, with our cactus planter growing in nicely.

And yes, another welcome sight in our succulent planter by the front door. Spring is here!

Front Planter Success

There is a lot happening right outside our front door, which you can't see from the road. All of the succulents that we ordered online and planted last fall are thriving! It's amazing to look at them everyday as we are coming and going. We are looking forward to adding some more this spring.

Super Door

How cool is that door!

Our new door from Austin Outdoor Studio is up and we couldn't be happier. I cant say enough about what a great job they did. Thanks Jonathan for going the extra mile and creating something we are very happy with.

We are excited to get started designing a outside gate/door to complete the wall project at the end of the carport. Here's what it looks like today:

planter and cactus

orange cushions

Sempervivum tectorum or "Hens and chicks" for the new cactus garden.

Graptoveria or 'Fred Ives' in a planter on the back patio.

The new planter with a bottom layer of stone and then the rest filled with crushed granite and sand.

We like this chair better with just the bottom cushion.

We finally upholstered the HW chairs. We are very happy with the way they turned out.

Spring and that huge dagger plant in the front yard is going off.

backyard full of wild flowers.

I never thought these would grow so fast.

What I thought were blooms are just new growth on the "SOB" cactus as we like to call it. That thing is mean - don't mess with it.
