This weekend, we worked on sundry and miscellaneous outdoor tasks.
First, we trimmed the bushes:
I'm going to extend the stone barrier (on the left) all the way down to our garage; I'm trying to decide what to do about the gaps between the bushes. (You can't see the additional 3 bushes to the right of the picture, but they continue the line down to the garage). I'm thinking of putting up some fencing of some sort (picket or wrought iron... whatever I can find for free) just between the bushes (to continue the line), and then planting flowers on our side.
Then, we attacked the wood pile; we made quite a dent, and have a lot of wood for fires this summer.
After (not quite done):
Our wood pile NOW:
Finally, we faced the garage, spurred on by Chile's challenge of garage decluttering.
As you may remember, this is the garage before (several months ago):
You can see previous efforts here and here...
Here's what we accomplished today:
Hiking and camping gear hung on nails, organized, and stored in storage tubs we already owned.
An open space cleared by freecycling a large quantity of items we didn't need, but hadn't gotten rid of yet. Here's to more usable space... just in time for summer!
