New Shrubs

A few weekends ago, Bradley and I decided to pull out the azaleas that we tried to transplant last year and start fresh on the right side of the house.  We shopped around and settled on Golden Euonymus.  They are full-sun evergreen shrubs that tolerate heat.  On this side of the house, that is important because it gets the scorching afternoon and evening sun everyday.  It took me a while to get a picture of them for the blog, because I was waiting on Home Depot to put their cypress mulch on sale, which they did over the weekend!  Here are our tiny new shrubs living it up in the new mulch:

I think the only other things I have left on the yard installation list include a Crape Myrtle next to where we cut down the pear tree and some sort of evergreen tree at the corner of the house in the shrubbery bed.  We put down 40 bags of mulch over the weekend, so everything looks fresh and manicured right now:

A little fun with Paintbrush to give you an idea of where I want the future trees:

Hopefully I didn’t kill any of them, but after the daffodils quit blooming, I transplanted them from in front of my new dwarf bushes into a bunch around the old pear tree stump.  Fingers crossed – they survived one transplant already, so I may be on borrowed luck.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
