Hello! I hope your November is going well. We've started a new project at our house. Some of you may recognize this as our back patio, fairy garden and water garden area, except it's not looking as nice as it did 2 years ago.
It all started when we had the rusty and leaking gutters removed and the house painted. We discovered that the wall to the left had so much damage that the ivy and flowers had to be removed and most of the wood replaced. I was about to start over when we found termites and the company recommended that we get rid of the dirt and wood chips up against the house.
This past week we called the company that converted our garage to completely re-do this area. The plan is to do put in a better drainage system (that is what the ditch is for) and stonework from the back door all the way out to the gate. Most of the area in the picture will be a patio table and lots of flower pots.
I'll be sure to share progress pictures once the rain stops. While all this work is going on outside, I'm about to clean and organize the kitchen from top to bottom. Just in time for Thanksgiving!
Until next time...
