I went out to water the garden and decided to walk around the yard and evaluate the landscape, or what there was of it....
When we moved in, we had some pretty greenery in the front. I think the girl that lived here first really liked purple because most of the plants had purple in them!
Not sure if this is Hostas or the caladiums we had last year, but it's coming!!

One of the things Fred and I said we wanted when we moved to Texas was a garden. We moved into our house in May, so we spent last year getting the inside of the house done. Now that Spring is around the corner (we hope!) we started to work on the garden. Now, we have never done one before and I have to admit I felt overwhelmed. Fred is such a good guy though and once he decides we're doing it, he goes full force! I just followed.... haha
We planted summer squash, ocra, green beans, carrots, peas and onions.We took line and marked off the different seed sections so we would know what was what! lol

Baby loves to go outside, she runs out every time the door opens.... kinda a pain, actually. So, I thought, SURELY it's too cold and she won't go out! ha! I was wrong!
By the time we got to the post office, which was around 9:30am, there was already a snowman in the front!
He was so cool!!
Of course, we had to make our own! the snow on Friday was not packing very well,
we made the one with the red scarf then.
I wasn't very pleased with our 1st snowman (actually snowWOMAN, thanks to Fred!)
So on Saturday, I attempted it again. The snow was a little better to handle....
I thought he was quite cute!
Here is the view from our front door
the front view of our house... I think this is so pretty!
My first Snow Angel!
I think this is another pretty picture
Fred was not being very nice to me!
in spite of the snow, we had tons of birds in our backyard
This is a bird bath I made up, looks like a snow cake!
The birds know where the buffet is!
something else I think it's so beautiful, it's the icicles
I thought it would be fun to make an "Ice" bouquet!
