We bought our home in 2005. The yard has gone through many changes in 17 years. We went from lawn to yarden. We have revamped on purpose and by accident. Other times, Nature has decided what got revamped. What I want to blog about for you is each area of our yarden from start to present. I am calling it "Yarden Evolutions." On our property I have counted around 18 yarden areas. I plan on blogging about at least one area a month, possibly more. Hope you like it.
(Just to let you know, some of the pictures I'm going to use are from the dark ages, when you had to use actual film. The photos were printed on paper at a drug store or on a little laser printer my mom gave us. I scanned some of them into this computer from a real scrap book. Old and scary right? Not sure if kids these days would understand, but I digress...)
You want to see the coming yarden attractions, OK...
Do you remember when I said some things were by accident? My best example is when I ordered gravel for our drive way in 2006. I needed it to fill my driveway, which was mostly grass when we moved in. I wanted it to be about a foot deep at one end to level it off, big enough for our cars to fit side by side, and three to six feet longer than our mid-sized cars. The guy I bought the gravel from said I wouldn't have to pay a delivery fee if I bought 10 yards. Awesome, I hate delivery fees and 10 yards didn't seem like that much. What did I know? But then it was delivered. When Theresa got home from work, it was the first time ever I saw her mouth the words WTF. Below you can see her either playing queen of the mountain or waving me over so she could hit me with the big stick.
17 years and an artistic wife who likes the outdoors can lead to a lot of blogs about a yarden. Projects like this can lead me to think that history can be cool sometimes.
(Disclaimer notice, remember when I said some of these photos are from the dark ages or at least 17 years ago? Some of the pictures may also not have the right years on them, but we are doing the best we can, just sayen.)
Type at ya later,
