Yesterday Tom helped Stuart and Heajin move furniture and boxes into the new house. I spent the day cleaning the kitchen. Well today we left Stu and Heajin to work at unpacking boxes and getting their home organized. Tom and I spent our day working in the yard.
The previous owners were just as good at yard maintenance as they were with house cleaning. The flower gardens must have been very pretty at one time but I don't think they have been taken care of for a long time.
We started in the front yard. Tom cut the grass while I got started on the flower bed which was just as mass of weeds and Perennials gone wild. He took over with the shovel and helped me complete the work on this one. Here are the before pictures. Some artificial white flowers and a rose bush out of control.
And the after. There is still more that we plan on doing to this but at least it looks much better than it did.
Then it was to the backyard. Another disaster of a flower garden.
And the after. Again lots more work to do but looks better.
Stu and Heajin took us out for dinner at a chicken wing place near by. It was really good. We were hungry, tired and dirty. They are on their own now for awhile. We will go and give them a hand with further renos as they arise but for now we are done. Now for a day of rest.
Until tomorrow - safe travels.
