My summer to do list is growing. And growing. And growing. Yesterday I scored a job teaching summer school in my student teaching 'hood, so I will lose a wee bit of summer with that, but not too much as it's 4 days a week, until 12:30, so there's still plenty of summer to be had.
One of my goals is to deal with the ridiculous bushes on the front of our home. We've been told our house has great curb appeal, and I have to agree it does.
Some neighbors across the street and down a ways built a small, free standing porch in their front yard. I love it, and I want it!
So eventually, the bush on the right side of the steps will be gone as well to make room for something a little like this:
The hydrangea bush will stay to cover the water meter and everything there, since we have the same placement on our house. The porch is a long-term, maybe-next-summer-if-we're-lucky kind of project, but isn't it pretty? I'm so jealous of my neighbors...
