You remember the newly relocated downspout?
It’s now painted! The lower-most section is just temporary until all the scaffolding is removed.
Egads! The scaffolding, which has been stuck in the SE corner for 584 years, has now moved forward!
See! The Tyvek has been on the first-floor walls since 2014! This area will be done after all the second-floor shingling is completed. If anybody had told me in 2014 that the Tyvek would still be in place in 2019, I would not have thought this possible.
The two pots on the front porch steps needed some attention, so this spring I planted these. They were stated as FULL SUN/PARTIAL SUN. No, they were not. The sun just beat them. So, I dug them out and will replant them in the shade. The poor dears.
I replaced them with red and purple vinca’s, which my friend Patrica has been recommending.
The vines are now six-years-old. They (seemingly) die off each winter but come back in the spring. I have no idea how. The purple bush thingys also die off each winter. I mean really die. But, each fall Scott takes two cuttings and grows new ones during the winter. So, the current purple thingys are, sorta kinda, also six-years-old. Thanks, Scott!
There are three things which, I think, announce that a house is loved:
- A crisply cut/edged lawn.
- Flowers on the front porch.
- Clean windows.
