How the house painting turned out...

It was brought to my attention that I never shared how our new house colors turned out. We went with Sherwin Williams 7508 Tavern Taupe for the main color and 7507 Stone Lion for the trim.

I really like how it turned out.
For the door we used Sherwin Williams 6989 Domino (aka Black).. I just put a fall wreath on it.
 And of course whenever I am outside our husky Rio wants to be outside too. :)

Here is a reminder of what it looked like before...

New Rose Garden!

I am so excited! I bought 5 new rose bushes and am going to plant a rose garden this weekend. The roses are not impressive yet.. but I am hopeful for next year and for years to follow!
I bought 1 climbing and 4 knockout roses.

Here is a little sketch of the garden I am going to make at the back of my yard. I plan to plant them in the shape of an S as this garden is going to be in memory of my sister Sarah. She always loved roses!
If you look real hard you will find a few plants that are still in bloom around my house....(It's surprising anything survived through this hot hot summer!)

Happy Gardening everyone!
