Back yard, before and after

The top photo is the one my sister took the day we closed, in March. The bottom one is one I just took right now from the same spot. My kids have done most of this work you see here. We took out several bushes (and now I wish I'd taken an intermediate picture with the leaves on the bushes), pruned the lovely Japanese maple, and raked all the crap out of the dirt. Now we'll seed some nice grass and there we go!

  1. The kids did a good job! When we were stationed at the Pentagon, the house we bought needed some renovation, but mostly a really big cleaning. I'm allergic to dust, so they did the basement first (only window A/C in the house) and then I spent most of the summer down there reading while they cleaned the rest of the house. I'm not sure my brother ever forgave me.
