Look, I know it’s just a shed.
Its sole purpose is to provide a place for beach chairs and umbrellas to rest beside the garage.
And My Captain is doing one heck of a quality job on it as he builds it. I mean, this thing will be able to withstand Category Five hurricanes…those cheap beach chairs and broken umbrellas will be SAFE, I tell you! He rocks at stability, my man.
But MY world worries less about hurricane ratings, and more about aesthetics.
We’re talking something I have to look at whenever I’m out on the deck when at Pop-Pop’s cottage.
I love the deck. I love it.
When the beach is too windy, or too buggy, or too noisy, I hang out on the deck, where I can enjoy the colors
and gentle, more protected ocean breezes.
The birds are plentiful, the butterflies are gorgeous, and the fridge is near. Why wouldn’t I hang out here?
But now I will have to look at this shed smack dab in the middle of Pop-pop’s garden oasis. And even though My Captain is making it blend in with the garage as much as he can, I feel compelled to make it blend with the garden as well.
So I found these shrub roses….Mango Salsa…Get a load of that name!
How could I NOT buy those? Who could resist? Not me, that’s who.
And with those beauties, I’m planting a lavender colored clematis, and a bright fuchsia petunias. Of course I’ll mulch the heck out of the bed I carve out around the shed, and it will take a year or two to look established, but that’s my plan, Stan. If you can’t beat ’em, mulch ’em.
Or something like that.
Stay tuned to see my progress!
