This isn’t really my next project. I just said that because I didn’t finish my last project due to procrastination (I did the bathroom walk-in closet instead, mildew and all), but if I say this is my next project, maybe I will finish my last project, which was bookshelves. Anyhow the next two days are going to be above 90°, so I have already gotten my walking exercise done for the next two days and am ready to lay low. So here is the “next” project:
The goose and whatnot have just been added. I was told there was no money for plants, but apparently plastic is no problem. The tire covers some kind of sewer lid of the same size. Regular access with be needed for the meters on the left and for the window on the right. Both sides of the entry are the same size and I plan to do them as mirror images.
There is also a side yard, where I plan to put some hostas and jade next to the front step. Tomatoes and peppers, along with orange daylilies, will probably go against the back fence, which has a southern exposure. I’m debating about lining the sidewalk with irises and/or hostas–do I want plants and leaves next to the sidewalk with their possible hiding place for mosquitoes as I walk to my entry?
Here is what it might look like “after”. The taller jade and iris in the back, hosta in the middle and smaller variegated hosta in the border with a few impatiens filling in. I can never work with a drawing, though. I just have to put the plants out there and start moving them around until they look right.
I forgot to draw the stepping stones, a gray limestone color. Not quite sure what to do with the plastic goose.
