Last Photos of Old House

I'm saying goodbye to the old house, the lot that I landscaped from the ground up - replacing every tree and shrub that came with the house (except one shrub), taking trunk fulls of discarded sod to cover the back yard, digging and amending the soil to make beds on all sides. It was a lot of work! 

November isn't the best time of year to show off the final shots of the yard. But to be honest, once I knew we were moving I wasn't all that motivated to make everything perfect and put a lot of time and energy into it. I spent a lot more of my energy painting the outside trim and interior walls. We fixed the fridge light and ice maker right before moving out. Isn't it funny that we lived with a leaky ice maker for years and fixed it in an afternoon and now we can't even enjoy it. I guess that's just how it goes. Nothing lights a fire for home projects like trying to get top dollar.
