Our First Trees

Owning a home is really fun! (Expensive, but fun).  This weekend has been chore-central at our house.  Not only are we in crunch-time for all of the wedding stuff, we also have to find time to pack for our honeymoon, and finish with all of our "to-do's" for the house. 

We planted our first trees this weekend, and I am so excited to watch them grow!  They are Mexican Fan Trees.  Supposedly they will produce medjool dates when they get older - I'd love that!

When we get back home from our trip, hopefully we'll be able to plant a few other things.  We'd like to get a garden started soon!

Other than these two trees, our backyard is still quite bare.  I don't know why the previous owners never planted any trees.  We do have two huge oak trees in the front yard, at least.

And now, I present to you the newest addition to our backyard:


  1. Oooh! I love this! Our home is surrounded by trees. I have to take care of a ton of bushes, and plant a hedge, but we have huge old trees. Which makes C really happy.

  2. Love the pic of the pup : ) I'm jealous of anyone with a green thumb.
