~ The Plan ~

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.

Aesthetics, Man!

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 scents


(hello, Bee-balm!)


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!
