I have been on a cleaning binge. And patching and repairing on my house.
I LOVE my home. But it didn't start out that way.
I LIKED it, but I've done a lot of work on it over the years. Let's say I saw the potential in it. Now, I really enjoy hanging out in my backyard.
This is a corner of my yard that shows the most impact.
The grass needed care. The screened in porch needed to get pulled down. So I pulled it down. And I planted trees. And I planted flowers. I also painted my house. And fertilized my lawn. I did a lot of this with my own bare hands. I also had a coupla friends over the years to help me which I will always be grateful for.
It is now really lovely to sit out in my backyard alone or with friends and family over dinner on a warm summer evening.
But it wasn't always that way. Because when I first moved in, my yard looked like this.
