Working in the Yard

front-sideCurb appeal is a BIG item for home sellers and that’s WHY we’ve been spending lots of outdoor time the past couple of weeks at The Frog & PenguINN.

Edging was done around all the front flower beds. Not many of the perennials are in bloom yet, but a few weeks there will be day lilies blooming in the front yard. Meanwhile, annuals were planted in several pots on the back patio and front porch and these are already in bloom.

See the photo below — it shows weeding done around the back patio and wildflower gardens — did I mention there was a LOT of wedding to do? All 3 of the backyard mulch bins were in use.  The vegetable garden was also cleared and turned.Besides the yard work, Grenville re-stained the back deck and power washed and repainted the back patio enclosure.  We’re expecting pears, peaches and apples from the back orchard — the blooms have been plentiful and beautiful this year.

Hope you are enjoying Spring IF it’s arrived yet — we’re hoping it returns before the Summer heat and humidity gets here.

I would say, by the looks of your photos, that you have a very saleable property. If you do move I hope you continue to blog.

Everything looks nice, but I see a lot of ovals with a white line through them....Exactly what are those? Maybe it's supposed to be a photo there or something.

I see the same thing as Mona, with only four photos coming through, and the last several posts have reverted to the same thing.

I also saw that oval on one pic in Reader, but they're all here on your actual site.

You have been busy and it shows. Everything is beautiful! I had to chuckle at your last statement. Spring is having a hard time showing up and even harder time sticking around. Now it's almost the month of May and it could go from 50's to hot and humid any day. UGH!
