Twelfth Fourth

Twelve years in and our empty and sunny front yard is now shady and cool. I’ve had to move some plants over the years (like roses and lavender) but the River Birch is a beautiful tree all through the year and we love having a cool porch during the summer.

The past two years of drought really hurt the boxwood we planted around the foundation so we’ll likely replace them with something else next spring–still looking at evergreens though.

This past year, aside from maintenance projects like freshening paint, replacing a few of the boards, and replacing all the gutters, we avoided a lot of changes to the exterior. We like the look of our bungalow and are using our energy on other projects–like two beagle puppies!
