ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Front Yard Facelift!

Every spring at our house we decide to take on a project or two. Painting this, adding that, replacing something or redoing everything. This year we decided it was time to give the front yard a facelift. 

3 years ago we started our front yard makeover by gutting most of what was there including the front patio and lawn. The following pictures are where we left off because we didn't know what to plant in the beautiful new planting areas... 

So last weekend we started this years facelift with planting 2 purple plum trees. The kids were a great help! They couldn't wait to enjoy a tasty smoothie under the new tree. 

After the trees were planted we added Mystery Gardenias and Boxleaf hedges and under the windows we added the same Gardenias, Boxleaf but added Society Garlic and Red Flax. 

I was in charge of arranging where everything went, cutting the holes in the landscaping fabric and the digging and planting of half of everything we purchased. The digging went a lot faster once we bought a post hole digger but boy was it a workout.

2 weekends later and here is our beautiful front yard. I can't wait for the Gardenias to grow and bloom and for all the plants to fill in. Until then I'll just enjoy driving up my driveway and walking by the colorful plants we've added to make our house OUR HOME.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
