In Retrospect, Just Hideous
In retrospect the garage was just hideous. Now its new colored siding gives my garden a new depth, and is a nicer improvement than all the edging and mulching I've done could ever make. Eveything in the garden seems quieter, more somber and subdued. Peaceful. It seems a sheltered spot.
If my neighbors knew, they'd pull down all the siding and rehang the crappy bits of metal and iron, just to see me suffer. They think nothing of flinging their trash bag between their house and my fence (only visible to passersby at the street-- not to me) as a storage spot until trash day. Luckily, there are no interested rats or raccoon.
So I have bits of painting to do, I want to edge the succulent bowl above in satin green apple paint, and bit of weeding and mulching to do. I grabbed a few colorful annuals on a deep discount to fill out some pots, and I have a bit of staging to do. And editing, like my small bicycle collection(!), and the annual veggie transplants still destined for the family garden. I need to touch up the painting on my house and deck and hang some shutters.
My first peony (of the tuberous type) bloomed today.
But...I am getting there.
Unless it pours tomorrow, maybe some pictures.
Thirty one days and counting.
