Deadline fast approaching




With the deadline only a couple days away I don't think I am going to make it and I don't want to rush the project along only to be unhappy with it in the end. Here are a few recent photos of the fence and trim pieces I put up. I am very pleased with the fence but it took a long time. 
I still haven't thought up a name yet!

more progress





I have been working hard on trying to meet the GreenLeaf Spring Contest but its going to be tough. I have completed the outside with the exception of a few trim pieces. 

Landscaping




My first attempt at landscaping is going well. Only a few hang ups but ones that can easily be fixed. One being I used foam core for the bottom and it warped after all the grass and soil was put on. I might have to glue it on a piece of wood but haven't decided what I want to do. 
I find myself wanting to add more and more, but don't want it to be too much. 
Next I have to work on my door. I still don't know how to make it look "country" like. OH...and I need a name for my store. Anyone have any good name for a Scandinavian country store???
Only two more weeks...I hope I can get it done by the deadline but it isn't looking hopeful.  

Here are some pictures of the soil and grass being put in place. It was tough finding grass that I liked but I am pleased with the end results. Then came the flowers. They were my favorite! Let me know what you think so far.
