You guys are great! All of the comments on yesterday’s post gave me the confidence to pull together a new plan for the garden—something that will cost very little and, I think, make our garden very usable very soon. I’m patient when it comes to plants, but I’m not patient when it comes to wasted space!
I’m excited about the grassy area for the dogs. Fritz and Bruno had a playdate with their new friends Maggie and Ada last weekend, and they were very impressed with their fenced-in grass run. Fritz is one of those dogs that tries to eat everything (*cough*sofa*cough*), and I get nervous about him having free run of the garden and all of the gravel, bark chips, and plants in it. A contained area will give our guys freedom to play without us having to hover over them every second.
I’ll try to take some up-to-date photos of our front garden tomorrow morning, too. The Purpleleaf Sand-Cherry is in full bloom right now, and it’s pretty fabulous!
