Backyard Bliss

We moved into our house about a year and a half ago.  We have spent the last year renovating and making it our own(click here to see my previous post).

When we moved in, there wasn’t really a backyard.  It was more like: House/Woods, which was great, but I really wanted a space to be able to entertain as well as spend time as a family outside.  I consider myself very lucky to have married a man that can do just about anything.  I’m thankful my dad ran off all those musicians & artists and talked me into marrying a country boy

Over the past year, Kelly Boy has thinned out part of the woods, added a deck and fenced in the the backyard.  We now affectionately call it “Clark Park”.  I’ve gradually added my outdoor furniture, and planted flowers and herbs so that it feels cozy and inviting.

As you may have heard me say before, I have an addictive personality, and my latest addiction has been gardening.  I guess there are worse things to be addicted to!  Growing up, I never really understood why so many people loved gardening so much.  This spring, I have discovered the therapeutic benefits of working in the dirt and watching things grow.

Here are a few shots of my backyard.  I hope you enjoy!
