We've been doing our own landscaping at the log cabin the last few weeks. There are many things I want (a patio outside the walkout basement, steps to the lake, etc.) but with the economy the way it is, I am holding onto our money a little tighter as well as seeing what we can do ourselves. All those other things we want can come at a later date.
Greg built some flower boxes and will fill them with blooms that will attract butterflies and birds. The 2 birds this man has really wanted to see at our cabin are the Wood Duck (which we finally saw a couple weeks ago - yea!) and a hummingbird. I hope the hummingbird cooperates for him! (P.S. If any of Greg's friends are reading this, please don't make fun of him for liking birds. I need him as my bird spotter!) Here are a few things we've done:
All of our rocks were free! We collected them down 2 track roads in our ATV. It was a lot of work but saved us a ton of money!
Here are some Gerbera Daisies I picked up for the deck. I think they are such happy looking flowers.
Here's a little primrose plant I picked up for our patio table.
P.S. To any of my blogger friends who may have made purchases from my Nature Store - please email me at shelleyupnorth at gmail dot com. Unfortunately Zazzle doesn't show me who orders and I would like to properly thank you as well as enter you in a drawing for another extra gift! Thank you so much!!!
