My husband and I have been fixing up a 1913 farmhouse for the past 10 years, and have much to go Believe me the outside looks much better than the inside! Someday we will be able to invite my husbands work associates home for dinner but as of now its better if they only drive by the outside.
We have 2 children ages 9 and 5.
When we moved here there were orange ditch lilys everywhere there wasn't a weed or a tree. We must have had 40 trees on the lot.

I love formal gardens. Our lot is 3/4 of an acre.
