Yard Holocaust at the Log Cabin

This week our lot was back filled and graded. The trees and other greenery were not affected on the lakeside - but the backyard (the side that faces the road) is what I now call a yard holocaust! Can you see how it highlights the propane tank nicely? Our neighbors (well they are a couple lots away) must despise us. Greg purchased some tree seedlings and bushes but you can tell from the picture that it will be quite a while before they reach a decent size. I'm going to head to the nursery and find some larger trees. I really love pine trees and blue spruces. Also toying with the idea of growing some blackberry bushes.

I am sure the neighbors don't mind. They probably remember when they were landscaping and had a time period when things really didn't look quite up to par.

I LOVE seedlings and smaller things due to cost, but it does take YEARS for them to catch up - I know we did the same thing, for some areas we must just all bite the bullet and get immediate beauty - which is also NICE when finished!

This is funny.
We, strike that, I, didn't want gas- it makes me nervous, didn't want that ugly tank and I don't like the smell.
I won. Electric heat pump.
So in the winter, I just wear lots of clothes. :(
