Project Verdant Oasis: Phase Two

Remember our multi-phase initiative to greenify the backyard? Last week the sod arrived, and now things are much, much better. Future phases involve seeding remaining thin areas of lawn, planting tomatoes, replenishing mulch, and planting bushes in heretofore dark corners.
In the meantime, the kids are pursuing their own landscape vision. This bush on our front steps has long been the repository for bike helmets and scooters. The kids generally whiz home from school and ride their scooters right into the bush, which holds them nicely.

Someone got a bit frisky today and somehow landed their scooter three feet up.

Note to self: Add "trim front bushes" to Project Verdant Oasis before said bushes take over the world.


  1. Yaaaaaaay! I love our sod, and it's only a few weeks old. May yours bless your life as mine has mine. q

  2. Beautiful! How green. That scooter...what a crack-up:)Leave it to boys......

  3. I'm jealous of your big, mature bushes. Our sad little ones in the front yard are so tiny they're really just sad (we had to replace them after the plumbing incident when we moved in). And your sod looks fabulous!!
