BEACH MUSIC’S COTTAGE GARDEN
Over the past 20 years we have made many changes to our little bungalow but none have pleased me more than the changes made in the garden.
This is the front before. The fence and gate were rickety even then but ivy covered it and we lived with it until May 2013.
What an improvement
and I adore my new arbor and gate.
Our front porch improved a bit at at time.
We planted along the straight concrete walk.
Now the path curves around a planting bed and is made of boxwood lined stones.
I like sitting in the rocker in the evening and listening to the ocean murmur.
The sellers sodded the front yard to clean it up and I tried to maintain grass over the years. It was a losing battle.
I prefer my current look of a stone path winding through shrubs, flowers and ground cover.
I have only this one photo looking toward the gate. Not much to see.
The back gate leads to this patio which was cracked concrete for many years.
Now pavers replace the concrete and form a raised planting bed
filled with colorful blooms.
The front NE corner of the garden went from this
to this. SIGH!
