Cottage Changes personality
Hi. Awhile ago I posted photos of my little cottage by the water: 1000 sq ft off the Long Island Sound in New Haven, CT.
This summer I wanted to put up a Cedar privacy fence and had to remove the waterfall and pond in order to do that. It turned out to be a good thing because I was finally able to remove all the ivy in my yard which was pretty but mostly a nightmare.
Then my front wooden steps collapsed so I replace them with stone. And added a bit of color on the lattice accents. Then I removed all the fake red stones from the front and back borders and replaced them with stones that were under the waterfall. Last but not least: I replaced the fake red stones that made my patio look like a "bullseye" with flagstone. I'm done now. There's usually more color but my 2 rose bushes are budding and my hostas haven't opened yet, mountain laurel just flowered and my butterfly bush is taller than my photos. Oh well.
