Well, not much has happened around the Lowther Lodge lately. Projects have basically been put on hold due to a hectic ultimate schedule. Every other weekend tournaments really takes a lot out of the home improvement project time line! Though, as I write this I’m overwhelmed by pictures I’ve neglected to share with you. Like the mulch spreading, the cut down trees, and the completed closet project! So, without further ado, the pictures…
Here are a couple of shots of the mulch we finally were able to spread. Notice how far the pile has dwindled?! Yay. We have a couple more ideas about what to do with what’s left.
More Mulch Pictures
On the right of this picture is a plant we recently planted. I can’t remember what kind it is but it has fuzzy leaves and should grow up to 6′ tall and 6′ wide. Great hedge plants that should help screen the view of our neighbors’
motorcycle backyard. We discovered 3 hollies and a couple of hostas peeking up among the weeds. Now that they have a prominent place in the bed, hopefully they’ll grow up to be nice strong plants!
Brian and I hope to replace that dead plant over in the left hand corner with a Japanese maple one day. Also, we want to put in larger foundation plants because these suckers do an
awesome horrible job disguising our foundation.
GROSS OUT ALERT!–If you are easily squeamish please do not look below! Except I have nongross out pictures after it…so scroll through quickly if you can’t handle it :-D
Here’s a little guy that came out to visit while I was clearing out the hosta bed along the righthand side of the house (see photo above). I seriously squealed
with delight out of fear when he came slithering out RIGHT NEXT TO MY HAND! Brian calmly scooped him into the recycling bin and deposited him in the easement behind our home. We were curious if any of you might know what kind it is (click picture to enlarge)? We figured it was a harmless garden snake, but as you can see from the picture below he was coiled ready to strike. I guess that doesn’t mean he’s not a garden snake….anyone?….anyone?….Bueller?
That’s all for now, and if you’re still reading, thanks! I hope you enjoyed another House Update!
Until next time,
