Side entrance

Yup... Still working on my yard. 
This is what I accomplished on Friday. 
But you know it didn't start like this. 
This is the enterance to our side yard. 
The side door is the door that we use the most. 
See the different colour of the stones..a bit beyond that is part of our driveway. 
Look at all of those weeds, or should I say, small trees, lol. 
I cut all of the branches off of the tree and then dig it out. 
The root was so deep, I couldn't dig it all out. Plus on the other side of the fence is my neighbours property and they have paving stones there. So I had to be careful. 
So I took the heavy duty clippers and cut as much of the roots out. 
Love my safe gardening shoes, teehee. 
Looks better already :)
But now to take out this dead plant. 
This one was actually harder to get out than the tree. 
I even got sweaty!!!
I can't remember the name of this shrub, but it grows all over the place and has many feeler roots.  
I didn't want to go back to the nursery, they have enough of my money for now. 
So I used some decor that I had scattered around the back yard. 
My sister bought me this little fairy girl for my birthday years ago. 
I love how her wings have weathered. 
Here is the full area. 
I just have to repaint my milk jugs. 
I first painted them a deep burgundy, but painted them white for Ashley and Tyler's wedding for their wedding arch. 
But I want to paint them my burgundy again. 
I have really enjoyed being outside working on my yard. 
Still have so much to do, but that is the story of my life... with everything, lol

Hope you all have a very creative day :)

Tracy :)
