My Wee Speck of a Yard
Plus there are two roses, which is nice. But there wasn't anything else. So I added a few annuals, and just a couple of perennials.
I was amazed at the number of snail shells I collected after putting down some slug bait. Bastards....oh, sorry.
The HOA rules forbid me to put anything atop the stucco wall you see.
When we first moved in we put our wooden "Templeton's" sign above the garage. It is a wooden surround around the garage door, and it wasn't even very easy to see, but it said "home" to us. After a few months we got a message that we had to remove it, because it made our unit look "different" than everyone elses.
Maybe I have moved to Stepford?
I do love my beautiful bougainvilla that is now next to the garage door. This is something I could never had had in Washington.
The rules do allow for things in pots.
Now I will have to depend on L Jay to water for me while I am gone up north for Easter, a family visit and a quilting retreat.
He did well taking care of my herb tower last fall, which reminds me, I need to harvest some arugula, mint and chives.
