A few snapshots:
New Emerald cedars (a steal of a deal at Home Depot). We did this in Winnipeg and it was my absolute favourite part of the deck. We still need to build planters for them. I also love how they look paired with wave petunias. Heart fluttering moment here.
Our rehearsal dinner for the wedding was held in hubs' parents' backyard. They had a gorgeous weeping jade crabapple that just so happened to be in full bloom for the big party. I still remember how beautiful it was, so we decided to buy one for our own backyard. Voila! Swoon.
Peonies. I love them. Even after the flowers have bloomed, they have beautiful leaves. I planted three this weekend, fingers crossed they all thrive!
Next up for the backyard: the new deck & conversation set, creating a stone walkway and ordering mulch.
This week will mark the end of a busy month for me in terms of blogging. It's by far the busiest month I've had, which I'm thankful for, but goodness, I've got to do a better job of balancing it all. I'm learning to handle the stress of deadlines, family life and such, but it's still a huge adjustment.
What did you get up to this past weekend?
