We moved into our house almost exactly ten years ago. It was an attractive (not) shade of mustard with brown accent. We’ve spruced it up a little since then.
It hadn’t been lived in for 6 month so the garden was pretty shabby. Weeds were growing everywhere. Not anymore.
There was a flesh colored limestone path leading through the whole garden taking up most of it. I can’t stand pink stone so we posted an ad saying they were free of charge if removed. We got rid of them all. Today not a pink stone in sight .
There wasn’t much in the garden to begin with, besides weeds, as the previous owners had a summerhouse and spent the growing season there. There was, and is still, though a plum tree, with delicious Victoria plums which I make jam out of every year.
Flammentanz roses and Montana clematis are now climbing the trellis we added to the side of the house.
Yay! 10 years! We’ve come a long way, still loving our house and garden very much.
