Almost finished....the front yard that is! (part 2)

 Here is a close-up of our storm door with the reflected flag, yesterday on Flag Day!

We have the flag out most days, especially in the summertime!

The yard of our 1970's house has been transformed since we lost the large elm tree last spring!
 Mr. P has worked very hard!
This is a gravel (crushed rock) pathway he spread to our front steps.

 The roots of the old elm have been exposed and used to divide the area into different planting beds, most of which are covered with bark chip mulch.

Just beyond the mailbox, you can see the young maple which we are hoping will someday shade our yard again!

 Straw flowers, one of the annuals planted near the mailbox this year!

Transforming the yard has been a huge project for Mr. P!
 Now that it is almost complete, we can get away to see our son and his little guy!  3 generations getting together for a visit close to Father's Day!

We are so excited!
