We have been living at this location for a few years and the gardens have not felt right. So we hired a gardener to do the heavy lifting. The heart balloon appeared one day, I thought someone loved what we had done, but no it just blew in and I confess, it made me happy.
In Feb,the gardener came and did half of the garden and I thought that I would leave the rest until I thought it all out. Nothing like half of a plan. I really liked the big blue pot and then of course, the rest of the plan came together. More river rock and a few more pots, some artificial turf and it will seem perfect to my eyes.We have slowly added more plants, polished the glass baubles. I need one art piece to hang on the wall near the kitchen window, I was thinking metal or wood, now I am considering making a floor cloth and hanging it up. Just have to think up the design.
So last Sunday, the artificial turf was put down. Thanks to my son and his wife, my grandson tested out the toys on the new surface, who worked on that. I added a new tablecloth, place mats and glasses. I love the new look. It is shady in the daytime, and sunny at supper, but now we even enjoy sitting inside having dinner looking out into a new improved space.I suppose it will take another year till I figure out the front sunny hot patio.
