Our poor little house has needed so much work. Not just on the inside either. Decades of overgrowth had taken over. Creeping slowly, taking it over like a disease. We knew it was not in the short term plan to start on the exterior. We had to get rid of the roaches and rotted floors on the inside first. But now, two years later, we have made our way outside.
It's amazing what a little back-breaking work and a couple of thousand dollars can do. Of course, we won't be the envy of P Allen Smith anytime soon, but it looks great to us. Clean, manicured, not a rat or snake in sight!
Want to see more? Yeah you do.
We planted azaleas, hydrangeas, boxwoods, and a bit of rosemary. They're babies now, but in a few years, this garden will be in full bloom. We also have a plan to add two crepe myrtle trees in front on either side of the front windows. I can't wait to watch it grow. The little garden statue was found in the backyard, under years of overgrown ivy. She now sits prominently in front as a reminder to water these little guys.
We can't stop admiring it. We've been doing a lot of this lately:
Cheers to Spring!
