Throw Back Wednesday from The Impatient Farmgirl!!


Hello My Sparkly Friends!!! 
Here is a throwback to 2012 when I redid my backyard.  I know that throwbacks are for Thursdays, but hey- I'm the Impatient Farmgirl so I do stuff when I want to!
Wow- Looking back I love how everything looked all pretty and new, and had a great thought that would be fun-  once the yard and garden starts blooming this year, I will do an update for you.

Doing an update will kick my butt into actually staying on schedule this year with planting, painting and prettying- so feel free to pressure me from time to time to see what progress I have made!!

Here is the post from 2012:

The pixies and I have been busy bringing the Pink Pixie Forest to life in my backyard.  We removed a few trees to make way for Mr. Sunshine, knocked down an old dilapidated shed, trimmed the big ugly black chain link dog run in half and changed it to silver.
Then we added lots of pretty crushed gravel and bluestone, hydrangea, hibiscus and rose bushes  and plenty of pennsylvania wall stone for some sweet rock walls.  It is now the home of two Fairy Cottages and garden art space for my classes, a raised garden for next year's vegetables, and a few little outdoor "sitting rooms" which I am still working on.  It is like a little pinterest dream come true!
Here are some fun before and afters!

Before- Concrete pad for fairy cottage
After- Cottage, Arbor and Bluestone 
sitting area and path

Before- Yucky Dog run
After- Raised beds- view from deck



I just love having these raised beds now instead of a big black chain link poopy dog run!!

Tobi and the Pixies!
