Please believe me when I say that our yard is a DISASTER. Like, I cringe when I go outside, because I don't want to be associated with our house from the outside. It's just mangled from years of being used as a rental and the worst drought in California history, followed by an epically rainy "winter". I say winter in quotes, because there was very little that made it feel winter-like.
But never fear, I have found a few wins in my outside spaces. I'm too nervous to show you what the whole place looks like until we're also showing you after pictures. Like I said, I'm embarrassed to be associated with our exterior situation right now. So it's just the cute little pockets.
This is the mystery rose bush that just started blooming today! And the blooms are orange! I was cheating by trying to sneak a peak at some of the buds that are just starting to break open, and it looked like there might be a yellow bloom in there too! But again, it's right on our walkway, just dying to take out innocent passerby.
Good thing we found my pruning shears a couple of days ago.
