I've been wanting to post some updated pics of the outside of our house for a while but once we got the flower bed lookin all prettied up it grew weeds in the past few weeks so I've been needing to pull them before I could take an updated after picture and show it! So yesterday was the day I got my pullin on and now it is back to its original glory.
Let me preface by saying yard work is to Adam and I as a diet is to Santa, torture... We do not like it. In fact, all 3.5 years that we lived in Raleigh we hardly did yard work besides cutting the grass which is a boy job of course :) I planted some flowers with my mom once and they got eaten by bugs which further deterred my "interest." We pretty much just "maintained" what the previous owners had done. We actually drove by our old house a couple of months ago when we were in the area for a very short amount of time but we squeezed in a drive by. It has to be like a previous owner privilege right? creepy drive-bys whenever you want? Anyways they had done SO much to the yard and it looked really good. In fact they removed a bush that we were kicking ourselves after seeing it and wondered why the heck we didn't remove it when we were there! Oh that's right we HATE YARD WORK. We were happy to see that our first house has been well loved and cared for :)
Back to our current house. Here is a picture of it when we moved in to refresh your memory.
We headed to lowes that afternoon and decided on Azaleas. They seem to do well here as lots of people in our neighborhood have them. And this is definitely the most we have ever bought from the gardening section at lowes.
