April 2009

I wanted a place to document my ever changing garden. This blog is mainly for my husband and I, but please feel free to follow along. I am neither a professional gardener or an expert in gardening, if I see something I like, I plant it. For the past 3 years, we have been working on our garden, and regretted only having a spotty before and after collection of photos.

So, here it goes.....

My husband and I moved into our home in 2006 - we were condo dwellers living on the Eastside and yearned for an older home with some charm. We found our "perfect" bungalow home on Beacon Hill. When I say "perfect" home, what I really meant to say was "needs A LOT of work and has definite potential".

Let's start with the garden. The parking strip in front of the house had a pumpkin patch and maybe some squash, we were the supplier of juvenile hijinks for Beacon Hill. The street facing sides of our corner lot was and still is surrounded by a moat of overgrown junipers. The back yard was overgrown, the only exposed planting beds were filled with cat litter and were put to use by our neighborhood friends.

Here's a couple of pictures of our house circa 2006.
