Hello Again

I know. It's been awhile. What can I say? I've been "busy" doing anything but home improvements. It didn't help that we were home only 2 weekends in a 10 week span. Though, I'm feeling the itch again. A few weeks ago I went out to the front to trim the ivy in the front planters and ended up ripping it all out. In 90 degree weather. . . this was a little unpleasant. But, I was just so sick of it. It's overgrown, has 112 other plants/weeds growing in it and it just didn't look good. So. . .see ya ivy! Now, there is a big dirt mound. Not better looking than before, but progress is being made.

Anyway, The posting should be more often...and exciting!

And I'm thinking about planting ivy!

I am worried about it being invasive though...

I'm pretty sure these plants were about 25+ years old. But, they do grow like crazy!
