This is going to be an unusual week for us. Braxton and I will taking a few days off to do some hiking in the mountains. We will try to touch base with you on most days.
For now I want to show you what our plans are for the patio this summer...
|This is the most embarrassing corner of the patio. Somehow everything (abandoned pots, bird feeders, watering can) always end up in this corner. I hope to replace all this junk with a statue we already have and some herbs.|
|A slightly better corner - but still could use some help.|
|What's left of last years herb harden.|
|This is where the workmen who put in the new heating/cooling system in our studio drilled through the wall. If I had any pride in my yard I would hang my head in shame.|
|After a fruitful trip to Lowes. We got boxwood, roses, geraniums and lots of herbs.|
|Wide view of the patio. I'm really excited about cooking out* this summer, something we haven't made time to do for the last few years.|
|Some tomato plants Braxton is planning to plant in the side garden.|
|This is last years veg. garden. We decided to plant a few tomato plants ONLY this year. The rest of this area will be planted in a ground cover with a cherry tree in the center of each garden.|
|The front porch with red geraniums in the planter Braxton built me a few years ago. Am I the only one who's always been a sucker for red geraniums?|
|I can truly say our front porch makes me happy every time I come home.|
* Here in the south we say "cook out" but I've heard other people say "bar-b-q" or "grill-out". What do you say where you live?
Have a beautiful day!
