Big improvement! Don't mind the grass. That is the next thing we will be working on. You can't tell in the picture but the texture on the house is Stucco. I have wanted to do this since we bought the house 4 years ago. I think I will need some flowers up front. I have my pots already, so Sunday I will be off to Lowes to buy some flowers for my pots. I am definately getting a bird bath. Don't ask me why but I have always wanted one.
