Our backyard

Our backyard before Geo attacked with the weedwacker and weed death.

Welcome to the Jungle
Our backyard for now

The hills are alive ...
What I would like to do with a little help from napalm

Look ... no grass

I'd like to have a back yard like the first one.

All lush and green. *sigh*

Not me! Sometimes it's like friggin Cambodia back there.

Concrete the sucker, I say.

LOL--Great photos! My husband is a gardener, of sorts. He likes to buy plants and plant them, but he doesn't like to do maintenance. He's a master gardener, and one of my favorite things to do is show up when he's volunteering in one of his little booths and say, "Hi. Can you tell me how to get my husband to mow the lawn?" :o)

Wow, you land baron!

LB4UL - Trust me, those pics were lifted. My backyard is a nasty looking plot with a splitting wood fence. Geo wants to do so much with it; however, there is so much to do before I would consider letting the baby back there.

Can you hubby provide tips on what to do with a yard that is 99% weeds? Lawn Doctor wanted to do a weed-n-feed. I told them the weeds WERE the lawn. We never heard back.

Pax - oh yeah. We got scads of prime land here in Philly. I'll post a picture of the real backyard tomorrow - complete with giant spiders, huge grasshoppers, and mutant junky moths.

I like spiders. I used to have a mexican red-knee'd, called Boris.

He'd sit at the computer with me sometimes. Did little else, I have to admit, just sit there and occasionally move a leg. Then, when he got bored (do spiders ever get bored?), he'd walk up my arm and sit on my shoulder.

That's all he ever did. No throwing balls or sticks for him, no chasing him around the room like a maniac. And i never once saw him lick his 'bits'.

Bah, humbug.

Spiders have bits????

Who knew ... :)
