In no particular order:
Project #1: Apply tiles to fence posts (and grout them this time!)
Project #2: Trim that crazily growing branch out of the Crape Myrtle tree
Do you see it in the top right corner of the photo? This tree is probably 20 feet tall and at the very tippy top is this crazy branch that looks like it's broken and falling over. It may be broken, I can't tell from below. If it isn't already broken, it will be at some point with the weight of the heavy blooms of summer pulling it down.
Project #3: Replace this panel of fence with a gate
Project #4: Replant this poor agapanthus
Project #5: Add a crystal to the water spout of the fountain
Round Top antique fair last fall to place in the spout so it will look as if a drop of water is falling from it. I'd like to then add a few plants for color and texture adding some softness to this corner of the patio.
Project #6: Add Oklahoma stone to some of the beds
Project #7: Espy and bring home a couple more bird houses for the trellis
Project #8: Power wash the limestone walls and patio
Project #9: Decide what to do about this window
Round Top (you really need to check it out) excursion I found some Chinese bed panels. They were salvaged from the homes that were removed to make room for the Olympic venues.
There are many more ideas where these came from...that's the charm of a garden...there are always new projects and possibilities. For now though, I think I better let this list rest...I don't want to overwhelm the handsome help!
