the mice do play. Well, in this case not the mice, but our landscaper friend. We had talked to W. a while ago about taking out some old scruffy growth beside the deck to make way for a driveway and a garden area.
As we drove up to the carport in our RV, late yesterday, I immediately noticed how light it was under there and I could see a view of Puget sound through the back of the carport where trees had been, which blocked the lovely view. It was then I knew the work had been started.
Some of the horrible old scruffy growth. You can see a flower pot which had blown off the deck in a wind storm, I could not retrieve it because the growth was so dense Whoohoo! all that nasty old scratchy stuff is now all going away.
In the foreground is the narrow garden directly behind the carport. A lovely lilac and forsythia are growing on the corner, tulips, sweet William, hollyhocks, daffodils hostas and many other plants share this bed. I am dreaming of all the new plants and bulbs which will be here in the future.
Can you imagine the plans swirling in my head? What to grow, when can I get to it, etc. I know with all the travel we are doing this year, and also the fact that I am still working part-time, that this project will take some time to accomplish. I nearly forgot, the deck also has to be replaced.
