Ever since it got to be a bearable temperature outside early last month, I’ve been obsessing over how I’m going to redo my backyard (truthfully I’d been obsessing all winter). Mostly up to this point, we’ve worked on clearing out some areas previously left unkempt, and now that I’m starting to get serious about making a Plan (officially with a capital P), I’m going over everything I’ve pinned to my Garden Board. Looking at everything together really makes it obvious what my tastes are: unfussy, overgrown, extreme privacy, a healthy mix of flowers intertwined with space for afternoon barbecues and late nights under twinkling fairy lights. And a fire pit. Always.
My younger sister and I made a rock lined path through the woods in front of our house last week. She added the dandelions to the entrance and my Mom and I moved the bench from another forgotten area of the yard. It was a good afternoon.
