First off I made a deal about Matt being my hero but the other two heroes are my dad and Matt's dad Dan who is an incredible landscaper in his own right, having been the man who transformed his home in Yucaipa from a dirt lot into a beautiful oasis. I wish I had a photo of it. Anyway… it's amazing.
The first morning back I went outside and hastily snapped some photos of the front yard. Boy is that grass green! And look at that, the oranges are turning orange. I think a few more days and I'll be enjoying fresh squeezed OJ from my own front yard. Woooooooo.front porch but for now we'll just add some plants around where the dirt is to give it some interest. Maybe that could be the "herb garden portion" of the garden.
