Secret Garden

May 12, 2011

We got our house about 3 months ago. Now, when I say we “got our house” I mean “finally moved in” because we waited 8 freaking months for this thing.

Everything was dirty, dusty, overgrown and dead. If you have seen what it looked like when we “got it”, then you know it was pretty much looked like the Jumanji house.

One day I walked outside and noticed my own secret garden – something that you would’ve never thought existed. Flowers so colorful, so vibrant. Gardenias that smell like an expensive perfume. Plants we never knew that lived here, but somehow showed their true colors right before our eyes.

From dead to damn amazing…

    Wow. What an amazing surprise. Friends of mine found themselves in the same situation. They moved in in the winter, and then by spring — bam. They’re yard was a gardener’s dream — kind of like Dorothy walking out of her house after it drops into Oz. Good luck with the house and the yard!

    My siblings are going through haggling the minutiae of buying a new house, which serves as a great reminder to my why I’m waiting a little longer. Still, I look at these pictures and think . . . there would be some really great things along with the headaches!
