Backyard Disaster

While Jay is working away at tiling the powder room, he has suggested that I get to work on the exterior.  There is rain in the forecast so I decided to start with some of the work that needs to be done in the yard.

There's a ridiculous amount of work that needs to be done in the yard.

I started this morning with weeding one edge of the back yard.  There are flower beds (mostly filled with weeds and a crazy amount of garlic) around the perimeter.

Warning: the photos you are about to view might make you want to tear your hair out.  Or maybe that's just the effect they have on me.

Here's the view of the right side of the yard.  Taken from the deck.

This is the area where the blackberry bushes grow all willy-nilly and the wire contraption that holds them up.
I will be removing these bushes.  I like blackberries as much as the next girl but they are just too leggy.  And ugly.

Weird garden of weeds in centre of yard.  A couple of dead trees.  Believe it or not, this is the section I weeded.

Here's the view of the back fence:

I'll be back tomorrow with a sore back, ruined manicure and my plans for fixing this space up.  God knows it couldn't really get any worse.
