Spring Makeover House Edition

I need a complete LIFE makeover but since that's not happening anytime soon I decided to do a makeover for the house. First, I had to pick a color which turned into a nightmare. Take my advice only look at 3 different colors. I needed to not only choose the color for the body of the house but also the planters & columns. With new paint comes new plants. That is the easy part if you know your plants & flowers. I DO NOT. So I had to look at 1 million different shrubs, plants, flowers and rocks. Who knew there were so many different bromeliads ? I also am remodeling the pool deck/patio. Well not me the contractor, but anyway... Wouldn't you know Mother Nature decided that we needed rain and not a little but rain everyday for the past 2 weeks. So much that we are under a flood advisory go figure. So hopefully my backyard can be done next week. We took down a few Palm Trees nothing major for the back just laying some more Stamped Concrete to complete the backyard & some river rocks. Here are a few before and after pictures. Whenever Mother Nature decides to work with me I will post pictures of the finished backyard.
