This is what our yard looked like last July when we moved in. The house had been vacant for awhile and not much work had been done on the yard. This is the side of the house. My veggie garden, a sunny perennial border, and a lawn is here now.
This is a crepe myrtle tree.
This is looking from the front of the yard towards what is now a veggie garden. There is a grape arbor on the left which is hiding behind the shrubs and trees. The crepe myrtle is on the right.
I will show you what it looks like now tomorrow.
