This summer I did make a vain attempt to start a bed on the other side of the porch...Unfortunately this is as far as I got as I ran out of motivation (and money) to finish this project!
I did manage to put up a few decorations and potted plants on the porch this summer
but that was about all...
Then my most generous mother and step-father offered to give me the gift of landscaping as an early Christmas/birthday present (my birthday is December 20th). You know you're a grown up when the thought of landscaping as a gift delights you to no end! Their friend Ed Bush, of Bush's Bushes, came over and worked his magic...
Some features include three high-bush blueberry plants, ornamental rocks, and several other varieties of pink, purple, and yellow perennials. I'm so excited to see what Spring will bring!
A couple 'before' and 'afters':
The landscaping makes the house look so much more 'finished'. Now that it's done I know I can manage the upkeep of the beds without that overwhelming 'where to start' feeling!
I'm so grateful and delighted!!
