Last Tuesday evening, I felt the urge to do something, anything to start to make this house ours. Often, short and sweet projects are the most satisfying, so I concentrated my energies on a tiny patch of “garden” next to one of the back porches. It looked like this:
After an hour of chopping, pruning and digging, I managed to tame the vegetative orgy, and the remaining plants were reduced to two: a scraggly rose bush and one lone daylily. I’m not sure that either of these are right for the spot, but they’ll do for now. Check out the dead-sexy rubble stone foundation that was hiding behind all those weeds:
I finished up by pushing the dirt around a bit to make sure that there’s positive drainage away from the house. It won’t make the cover of Country Gardens anytime soon, but baby steps, right?
