My present situation - *Blush*

I am in desperate need to have a special outdoor space so my husband has given me the backyard to do with as I want. So, I've decided to do a project by turning my backyard into a special place of beauty and community for bees, butterflies, dragonflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife. It is definitely not going to be an easy short or project - it is going to take a lot of time and hard work and of course my back is a no help!

I have a clean slate to work with due to the winter months here in Florida and the lack of time spent in the back with the exception of our three dogs who've frolicked outside in the cooler climate which has taken it's toll on our back lawn.

Since everyone here has such beautiful pictures to post I am a bit embarrassed about posting pictures; my backyard has been neglected over the winter months, especially since our irrigation system had to be turned off due to a leak a few months ago.

I am eager to the challenge and want to get stuck in...

We love pictures!! Makes us feel better about our shortcomings. Hilarious! Hilarious! They also help see what you are working with so we can more easily offer ideas.
