Well, we're not there yet, but we are working on it. Matt and I have been busy in the front yard and now we are slowly turning our attention to the backyard. We've planted a couple of things here and there. Like this crossvine from Plant Escapes Gardens:
We have also spruced up the backyard with some purchases like these yellow Adirondack chairs (a steal at Big Lots for $19.00! Yes, they are plastic). I have a small obsession with outdoor pillows and iron-on vinyl, so I plan to make some pillows for these chairs with a beautiful fabric from Anna Maria Horner's Drawing Room line.
