I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (Wordless Wednesday #1)


Since I take a lot of pictures and enjoy everyone's else's "Wordless Wednesdays", I thought I'd give it a try. I'm just not sure how wordless I am capable of being :)

This is my front lawn and sidewalk right now. Do you like what I've done to it?

Michelle said...

Do you have some big plans for some additional landscaping? Or, are you a nice neighbor that is fixing one of those annoying big bumps in the sidewalk? :)

Karina said...

Very nice front yard...I think I'll do the same to mine. ;-) Hopefully something nice will come of this!

Lori said...

Ugh....what a hassle.

Mrs Wibbs said...

Hehehe...!! Love what you've done/are doing to it.
Thanks for popping by my blog btw :)

oh my!! hope your project goes well.

Reba said...

I like what you done to your yard. I'd like to come dig it up some for you. Diggin' is fun and it wears down the claws on my front paws so they don't have to be cut. I hate it when Mom tries to cut my toe nails. Rottweilers don't like their feet handled (well, this one don't anyway).

Thanks for visitin' my first ever blog and my first ever Wordless Wednesday post.

well re doing is never easy but always worth the effort in the end...well, almost worth it! :) Good luck getting through!!!

vlado&toni said...

FatBlokeThin said...

Going underground - the Jam? Lol.


I know what you mean about Shelly at This Eclectric Life - I don'y get time to read 10% of what she rights and have any time to do any myself!!

Anyway, happy WW and thanks for visiting.

Dynamite speeds things up...

Where I'm from, the city would be the one to arrive on your doorstep with a backhoe, perhaps even after you just landscaped! But luckily they put everything to rights when they're done.

addie said...

Seems like you have a lot planned for your driveway!!! Good Luck.

Thanks for visiting my WW Morning Ramblings

Just lovely! And what's next? :-) Happy WW!

Melanie said...

Oh I do like what you've done to it. I hope you have a few more plans for it, though!

Qtpies7 said...

OH, yes, who's your landscaper? I'd love a referal~

Jessica Morris said...

Stunning!

Thanks for the list - I am going to look some of them up. I love music!! Have you ever heard the instrumental group Bond? They are amazing!!

CreativeOutletDesigns said...

Oh my goodness! must be some big project!

Dan said...

It's an odd choice of garden ornament, but whatever floats your boat.

DariDonovan said...

Happy WW from your Peoria neighbor! Thanks for stopping by.

Sue said...

Can't wait to see it when it's all done.

Pearls of Wisdom said...

Comedy + said...

Yep, this looks about right. Hopefully they won't ruin any of your grass or walkways. They can leave a mess. Happy WW. Peace :)

FRIGGA said...

Beautiful lawn & sidewalk. Oh wait, you mean it's not done yet? Okay, if you say so...
Happy WW!

Michael C said...

I'm glad you explained it. If it had been wordless, I would just have assumed some idiot backed into your lawn. Although I guess the caution signs and tractor would have made me the idiot ;-)

Imma (Alice) said...

I'd love to get equipment in to dig up my place and terrace it all out... that would require retaining walls too... and huge money. Sigh.

Happy WW

sewer problems?

This Eclectic Life said...

That's umm...interesting. I need that machinery to knock down a "burm" in my yard! I don't know how you spell it, but it's a huge bump that I don't need there. You are as incapable of being "wordless" as I am! Guess that's why I like you.

Welcome to ww! I am sure it will look a lot nicer when it's done...
