|(New sills on the shed.)|
(Our wedding anniversary is Thursday, [FOUR YEARS!] and I requested a small anniversary nursery flower shopping trip instead of a bouquet. I think this should be its own holiday: Anninursery. Or maybe Nursiversary. Hmn.)
Our front flower bed was solid weeds when we bought this place, and slowly, slowly, I'm digging out wedges of weed-cake and replacing it with pretty things. Foxgloves, dwarf lady's mantle, golden creeping jenny and Cimicifuga, this year.
Bit by bit, I am digging away the sod and dirt over where my greenhouse is going to live, and carting said sod and dirt to the raised beds I am building in the garden, and filling them in. The greenhouse will have a floor of gravel, 6 inches deep, for drainage and to serve as a heat sink. (I have no idea what I am doing.)
The gravel will be ringed with cinderblocks, on which I will lay the first layer of frame-lumber. (I have no idea what I am doing.)
Right now I have like seven or eight BIG, unfinished projects I'm in various stages of acquiring materials or time or money for, and it's making me a wee bit batty. Greenhouse, shed repairs, raised beds, and those fireplace-flanking shelves I'm still in the process of painting. Someday, maybe, I'll have the luxury of doing one thing at a time. Not today.
