She's a real looker, ain't she? Well after our good hard laugh, Mitch's Dad said that he could reside it with aluminum siding. And (the best part) he'd do it for free as part of our wedding present. Shoot, go right ahead. Little did I know that it'd end up looking like this.
What a transformation, right?
So a couple years after that, I decided to make a flower bed in front of it. I designed one on BHG's garden plans and had Mitch prep it all for me. Here's my man lookin' all big and bad (in his flip-flops.)
I call this my Florida bed. Doesn't it look like the FL peninsula right there? We planted several shrubs, zebra grass, Perry, (the pear tree--and yes, we name all our trees) and originally a Japanese maple which we later transplanted in the front yard.
And now this is what it looks like several years down the road.
My one sole raised bed that Mitch made for me last year. It has all I need--a few tomatoes, pepper plants, basil, zucchini, and some carrots.
Here's the before and after again for ya's.
That's transformation #1. Come back tomorrow to see our basement transformation.
