A long time ago in a land far away…..
….I had big plans for this space.
And so we cleared the ground and laid the pavers and planted grass to grow between them and I was going to add a green house and a fire pit and a hedge border.
Well….except…..I didn’t do any of it.
It looks almost exactly the same…..except now the white chairs are a little dirty and have aged a couple of years….
….and there’s a few more daffodils.
You tried to help inspire me.
You gave me the most amazing advice on what to plant between the pavers when the grass didn’t grow.
And we tried a little of this and a little of that….
….but nothing worked.
So this almost amazing outdoor space…..just sat there….grassless…..with the plastic chairs from Wal-Mart….
….growing a little more forlorn with each year that passed.
But this is a new year.
And I know I’ve said it before…..but I’m saying it again….
…..I have big plans for this space.
And I’m telling you…because I know that I know….that I know.
This is the year.
This is the time.
This is the season…..
….that I’m actually finishing what I started years ago.
And here’s my inspiration board.
I’m thinking no more grass between the pavers….we are going to bring in gravel.
And create space for a fire pit.
And clean the furniture.
And add a greenhouse and maybe an arbor and planters and tables and benches and pillows.
I can’t wait for you to see it.
Now I just need to get started and that’s where the challenge comes in.
So maybe for now…..I’ll wash off one of the chairs and pour a glass of sweet tea and rest a while….
….I mean…..all this thinking about the garden patio is a lot of work.
