Our new house revealed: The exterior!

Well, the new house is finally at a level where I'm comfortable posting some pictures. Things definitely aren't "done," though I suppose they never will be completely done, but they're definitely getting there.

So welcome to our new home!
Front of the house. I absolutely love that green door.
Beckett's swing and our wonderful magnolia.
Close-up of the front. Painting the shutters is on our long-term to-do list. I'm thinking navy (keeping the trim white) — thoughts?
From the end of the front walk.
Broader view. We have great trees.
Side of the front yard.
Back patio and garage — oh, how I love our garage.
Backyard and deck.
Deck and backyard garden. This raised bed was already there when we moved in, so we planted a small garden and have some herbs in a pot on the deck. Next year, we plan on taking over the corner of the backyard by the compost bin for a much larger garden.
After much trimming and weed-pulling, some minor planting, cleaning up, and a good bit of mulch and pebble laying, the yards are pretty much where we want them for this year. We're just trying to get everything to survive the heat for now, and then we'll aim to make some additions and improvements next year.

Stay tuned for peeks inside the house...
