So, please bear with me as I give a somewhat abbreviated house & yard update, in no particular order. . .
NEW (to me) FRONT DOOR!! Finally got this installed by a summer coworker, we're trading his carpentry skills for my dog-sitting capabilities. Win-win. I really love it this door. I still need to get a new storm door, but for now, I'm just glad it's finally up!
(please disregard the awful door frame trim color, the odd
pairing of green vinyl siding and tan shakes vinyl siding,
and the cobwebs . . . I swear they were for halloween.)
|Window detail. My favorite part, especially when the|
sun shines through!
|Everything has elbow room now!|
|Mulch makes everything look nicer.|
|Picture this mulched, it looks much better!|
|Not the best shot, but you can just see the stone (below) connecting the two beds|
|Hello, friend. not sure how I managed to lug this all over the yard -|
it's an armful, and it's heavy!
|Looking up the bank; lots of daylilly, iris, some ferns, and|
probably some other things - it will be a surprise in the spring!
|Looking down the bank; along the back cedar line there are also a bunch of|
narcissus bulbs that came from the front yard bed.
|The black bin will be used this winter along with the big bin|
|No more dead tree!|
Soon to be firewood. . . maybe for an outdoor fire pit?
|Soo many gallons of paint! |
Luckily, I needed less than I bought.
|My tireless painting partner. . . it was dang hot|
up there, but we pushed through!
So now, with the cooler weather settling in, I'm getting some inside things accomplished - painting, knitting projects, etc. And I promise the updates on those will me a little more timely!
