I guess we're having fun, right? It has been more than a week since I posted, and Bloglines is telling me I have exactly 144 webpages to read...I have not been sucked into the vortex of Ravelry, but rather actually mostly enjoying summer and working on our environs.
We bought this house last year, and while it was apparent the previous owners had been working on the inside, it was also painfully obvious they had neglected the outside. I don't have photos of some of the beds yet, so we'll tackle the windowbox.
The windowbox. It doesn't look that terrible, right? Hah. Take another look...
It, along with the shutters, badly needed some scraping and paint and impatiens.
Ah the magic of the Internet. All done.
Ok, so this was a few weeks ago. The impatiens are really filling in now and look nice.
I'm working on the back beds and we got a landscape contractor to do the front. Who are we kidding? We have a 2yo and a 4yo and doing all the flowerbeds would have taken about three summers. (You have to take into account that 'summer' lasts for exactly 76 days here.)
Oh, I got a tickle from my Sockapalooza pal. And with no way to email her back, here goes: Cuff....I'd prefer higher than anklets but lower than knee socks. Three/four inches higher than anklets would be perfect! Use your judgment--I trust you. (and thanks!)
