Well, several years back (4 I think?) I’d cut back a Crepe Myrtle and stuck the branches to the side. Not sure if I’d told you all, but guessing I did.

Well, FINALLY got motivated to make use of them as I’d wanted to and build a fence out front.

Also cracked up the sidewalk, but that’s another story. Needless to say though, catching up on the yard work and finishing up some front-house projects. The least of which was moving some odd 75 Daylilies. Should look good when they start to bloom, no?

That looks really good, Scott. I love the fence, and the broken sidewalk, as well as the day lilies.

It is good to hear from you again.

Thanks! I just dug back through my old posts (man, has it been 700+ days??) and saw that the one prior was pictures of the front and where I was expanding the bed along the walkway. Time flies.

Yes, time flies, when you’re working hard. And you must have been working very hard! The landscaping of the front of your house looks wonderful, Scott. A job well done. Those lilies will make a beautiful approach when in bloom and look good still when the flowering is over. Don’t forget to get pictures to show us.
