Red Brick Road
I failed to add to my list the backyard. When we first moved in to the house, the backyard was a jungle/wasteland/not glorious.
That’s what it looked like when we first moved in. Not exactly “party-perfect.”
Come to find out, mowing the grass can do wonders. It’s amazing what things you might find. We found big red pavers, and that gave me an idea.
We already spent a lot of money on recovering our bedroom from a ridiculous leak. Why not repurpose what we found? A little placement strategery, a broom and some red mulch – and we now have our little red brick road. The Moosehead enjoys it.
That tub was there for the keg. We may be old and bought a house and all, but we still know how to party.
Anyways… in addition to our new(ish) pavers (grass didn’t grow there anyways, and the other brick pavers that were originally there were – ugly), I added some flowers to the mix. Come to find out, that Gardenia we found in the backyard only blooms once a year. So having a unbloomed bush (which is what it basically looked like) was kinda boring.
And for added privacy in the future, I got me a baby Bougainvillea. That baby will grow massively and beautifully, perfect for that awkward spot on the fence.
It’s called Sundown Orange. A perfect complement to Red Brick Road.
