Are you like me and have "before" pictures that you really wish you didn't have to show?? This would be one of mine. As you can see, I attempted once to landscape this area.... and well yea.

Has anyone noticed a pattern here?

She must love me.
I would still like to do a stencil on the mailbox, but since it's been on my "to-list" now for over a month, I gave up and decided to do this post before the snow covers the whole pretty scene!
