We are almost finished priming the house. ALMOST.
Its been about three months of just patching and priming…we haven’t started putting the real exterior paint on. I think in about a year we will have the house mostly painted.
I worked today weeding, patching and priming the big front planter. I’m trying to decide on how to landscape the newly cleaned up beauty. I think we are putting gravel or river rock as a base and then possibly barrel cactus / agave / flax (I really don’t know what yet) in a really modern repetitive line. I dream of a wall of papyrus or maybe a nicely trimmed horsetail reed wall…but those SUCK UP water like crazy, so they are a no no. I saw some AWESOME kangaroo paw at the nursery that I definitely want to go somewhere…they may be an option.
We should probably build the horizontal cedar privacy screen on the front porch and finish painting before breaking out the live plants that would most likely die from neglect and weeds.
So I wouldn’t recommend holding your breath to see greenery. We can’t seem to finish anything lately. *Remember the pink bathroom? Oh yeah, that project is pretty much stalled indefinitely. Poop.
I’m going to change this blog to The Ghetto House.
