The sun came out in our area. And while it’s nice to see, it’s still fairly cold. So I’ve had no enticement to get outdoors and play in the soil yet.
But spring is struggling to reach its way to the top regardless.
As cold as it has been, I just felt like taking a walk outdoors today. To dream a little…
What surprises will the garden hold this year? I’ve always wanted a junk water feature, so maybe?
An additional shed would be nice. A barn style, super nice! Or maybe a woodworking expansion to the garage, loaded with windows overlooking the mountain view. Perfect for photography.
But something always holds me back.
Spending bigger coin in this yard is hard, because I’m not sure this is my forever home. It certainly could be… it has all the basics for sure. But my eye always wanders towards places with little barns out back.
I should just keep my eyes at home, and continue making this my dream home.
Maybe that’s what it’ll take to quit looking around.
I hired a pro to prune all the trees and shrubs. I should have taken a before picture. But that bench had disappeared inside the ivy, and every shrub was overgrown and touching each other. And the ivy was climbing up one side of the house.
It’s a little like a spring yard ghost town. All the components are there. They just need life.
And red geraniums.
Rust always looks better with red geraniums.
But I’ll admit one thing…
Have you started any gardening yet? What plans do you have for yours this year?
