Home Improvement

Since we moved into the house in the middle of August 2003, we've been very busy working on the yard and gardens. Although the house and yard were in pristine condition when we moved in, there's always the need to make your new residence into your home.

In the yard, we've moved three palm trees to a line close to the road, planted a young Yellow Poinciana tree (a beautiful, showy tropical tree native to Kung's Thailand), planted several Thai herb and vegetable gardens, and planted a variety of other small trees, bushes, and flowers. This Spring we made a new patio in the back yard, surrounding it with a home-made white picket fence and Thai-style arbor. It was a lot of work but we are very happy with the result.
