Chair as a planter

One sunny fall afternoon as I drove through my neighborhood I saw these amazingly shaped chairs sitting on the side of a road. They caught the corner of my eye and I turned my car around and to pick them up! – Trash Day Gold!! – These chairs missing both a back and bottom were designed to become the perfect planter.

I like the look of them through the front door, giving my porch a sweet and beguiling appearance.

Weed(ing) and the yard

I started my day with weeding.  It was thrilling to begin the process of clearing out weeds, limbs, and fallen leaves in order to begin the creation of the backyard garden.  Image

The turquoise platform has been engulfed by tiny  yellow budding weeds which provided a nice place for butterflies to feast!

The expanse between yards is over-grown with shoots from trees and shrubs and weeds intermixed with english ivy.

The expanse between the two houses after some weeding and trimming of the brush, Georgia red clay was exposed.   Soon it will be covered with mulch as the garden begins to take shape.

The platform is freed on one side from weeds and from above as the limbs have been trimmed.

After a few hours, the backyard is more approachable.  Stay tuned for this journey towards a total transformation!
