Sunday Recap

As promised - we'll finish today with some photos of the new additions to the yard...

For starters though - John rocked out at church filling in for our worship leader. Two of our friends from our old church came, and it was really nice to see them. (Hi Jenn & Dawn!!) After the main service - we had a baptism ceremony. Three people were baptized today, and I was really glad to see what it really was like. I'm looking forward to going through the ceremony in June.

After church - John's parents came over for lunch, and to celebrate John's mom's birthday. We had a lovely afternoon, and even worked in a nap. I wish I would have worked through my tiredness, and done some scrapbooking - but I didn't... and I'm not going to beat myself up about it either! (don't try to make me! HA)

Without further delay... here are the photos:

Here is a close up of one of my new hibiscus flowers... pretty!

Full view of the front of our house.

Close up of the positioning of the hibiscus trees.

The flowers and the greenery in front is the bulk of what we did in the front... I'll take some more photos as they start to grow in and fill out.

We put in the front plant here - and left two of the ugly things we ripped out of the front flowerbed.

We built this flowerbed to match the one on the left side of the driveway.

Here is one of my new matching hanging plants for the back porch.

Here is our new red bell pepper plant - below the hanging plant on the right of the porch.

Our patio tomato plant under the left hanging basket.

This is the crepe myrtle on the left side of the yard, and the flowers that look so great - are the exact flowers we just planted in the front. We have an identical flowerbed on the right side as well, and it looks just as good. I can't wait for the crepe myrtles to bloom!!
