No More Drab and Dreary

Welcome to our home!  Will you wander with me...

Here's our cute little historic home located in Salt Lake City, UT.  We pulled up the grass two years back and xeriscaped our front yard.

Josh has custom made many items in our front yard.  Sculptures blend in with the plants, the rocks, and the bark.  They really add interest to the space we've created.  Above you can see a planter, a sculpture, and some number tiles that he made last summer.  I really like how they give the home a uniqueness that makes it stand out from the other homes on the street.

Once again we chose succulents for this beautiful planter Josh made.  They are so wonderful and water-wise.  I can't wait to see how they fill in as the summer progresses.

And here is our pet turtle.  He hangs out in the front yard and eats all the bad bugs.  He, he, he.  Honestly this little guy is not real, if you haven't already noticed.  Josh custom makes ceramic creatures.  Don't you love this little guy?

I love this time of year when life starts to pop out of our drab and dreary yards.

Each spring new life pops up in the yard along with ideas on how to make it even more beautiful.  As artists I think it is great to have a canvas that changes with the seasons and can continually be reworked.

What a great landscape! Were always saying our house needs more curb appeal and yours has it!

Thanks Lori! You're back yard is looking amazing might I say!

I was thinking about posting more photos of homes in the neighborhood, homes with great curb appeal. We'll see. I'm currently ill so hopefully soon I'll get around to it.

Oh! What a beautiful home! It's exactly the type of bungalow that I've always dreamed of!
