Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

This week on VIP Home, I am going to welcome y’all to the jungle that was once called my yard. *cue Guns N’ Roses*

Since my last post about my apartment green space, I have barely pulled a weed or tended to anything other than cutting the grass. Yes, shame on me–I am not a gardener, nor do I claim to be one. *wink* With colder weather vastly approaching, I knew I needed to get my yard all nice and clean because nothing is worse than trying to weed a garden with frozen soil…well, I suppose digging for gold in Alaska would be worse. Speaking of gold in Alaska…I just love Gold Rush–Parker Schnabel and his granddad are the cutest things since purple rain boots *wink*

Now, where was I? Oh, yes–my jungle. Can you see why it has not gotten properly tended to? My life is full of distractions…so many distractions.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the BEFORE photos of my yard and the during of the pre-winter clean up. Come back next week to see the AFTER photos + my finished walkway! Ah! I cannot wait to reveal it to y’all :)

I was cleaning up my yard while also babysitting my mom's dog Lucy. Lucy in this photo is saying, "what in the world is this mess, woman?!" You know your yard is messy when your dog tells you...or perhaps that's the lack of sleep talking *wink* Oh, what a busy (and beautiful) life!

I'm a plant murderer. Neighbors, do not ask me to water your plants while your on vacation. I can assure you that I will forget to water them...I mean, look at my fern. Pitiful. I am not proud.

Rogue lantana.

Um....yeah.

My neighbors vines creeping in under the fence. This image very much reminds me of a silly science fiction movie I watched one time...something about killer vines? *wink*

An excessively necessary amount of weeding took place. Also, Mattie decided to pop in for a photo.

Progress.

My massive bee balm plant turned bush...literally. The thing has a stalk...A STALK.
