We lived in the next street over for 10 years, in a large townhouse. This was until hubby was in ICU, and hospital for a month, and then rehab.
I had no choice but to move us to a bungalow/condo/single story home. As the house had been empty, the bushes/shrubs had died.
I worked hard the first year using bulbs, and plants, and buying a lot of topsoil to go over the sand, that we call dirt. The last 2 years I have had the odd bloom at different times, but now they are well established, this is what they look like today.
Yes, I know I need more topsoil, and it needs to be weeded. Our landscapers are supposed to weed, but haven’t seen them do it in months.
I am so pleased that our home looks like someone lives in it.
