Trips to landscape, plant, and flower stores are so nice, even when we just come home with an armful of dollar flower pots…. every little plant counts to make this space grow. It’s been a slow (and hot hot!) process, but it’s really been great. Our garden is coming out so nice. Alex is seeding like crazy. Marlowe is stealing miracle fruit like its her job. And I’m, well, I’m ever so gently trying to pick off and find new homes for the caterpillars that have been making our passionfruit their lunch.
We’re homebodies, so it’s nice to put our space together, inside and outside, piece by piece to make it something we love so much. But we’re not done yet. Not even close. Okay, maybe sort of close, but we have SO MUCH more to do! We’re making our way to the side yard next. That space up there ^. We’re thinking pavers or an on-ground wood deck for the left half of it. We’ve gone back and forth for a while now, and like our raised beds, price and ease of building will determine how we set up our space. Our dining table (aka picnic table that has been sitting inside) will be moving outside. We’ll set up our fire pit, in a proper way. One or two more beds to the right, along our house… and maybe even a banana tree, because, well, monkeys. Oh… and you know what else we’re hoping absolutely planning to build in the future?? A pizza oven! If you’re facing our pergola, it’ll be in that empty space to the left. We’re all looking forward to that 🙂 It’s really coming together. We’re all really pleased!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
