I mean, really - lookit that face!
That being said, I've been able accomplish a lot around the house and in the yard. The biggest thing we've accomplished is paying someone else to rip out the overgrown, terribly dated shrubs in our front yard. It's amazing how much bigger our little ranch house looks! We need to figure out what we're replacing them with, but since it's safer to start planting after the first week of May, here in New England, we're working on it.
In the meanwhile, I found some pansies and gave them a new home, and I added some landscape lighting. I chose solar lights for ease of installation, but I made some customizations to fancy them up. Pictures to follow!
