So I went a little crazy … It started with the strawberries, they are doing so well. Then I have this large empty pot I wanted to put a dwarf tree in. At the nursery, I really had a hard time picking what type of tree I wanted. I ended up with a Satsuma Mandarin, which I love, but still was aching for the Meyer Lemon, with its versatility.
Then, at the hardware store, it ends up dwarf trees are on sale, so in my indecisive manner I decided to go for the Meyer Lemon, Grapefruit then threw in an Avocado for good measure. Toss in a couple inexpensive wood planters and my former trash can – junk area is now an orchard!
No more shower anxiety!!! Yes, I would have to rush and rotate shower tasks due to the limited hot water. NOT ANY MORE! Now its like being at a day spa!
Why? How? Well the hot water heater turned into a bubbling fountain so it was time to replace. Ended up splurging on a tankless water heater! It’s so nice and small, it allowed me to tuck the water conditioner out of sight as a bonus!
Dressed up the front door and also the side. Added some pots which I already had along with a nice papyrus plant in a planter Jack left. On the side, I added the blue fescue as planned. I am very happy with the results.
They are just absolutely stunning! I have the option to do something with the old one…maybe a side table? benches for outside? The major additional cost would be the base for whatever I chose to do though…hmmm…?
Got the front bed and side area done…mostly happy with it. I’m thinking the large succulents in the front bed should be lower to the ground, maybe I should have got these other ones that are brighter green and more like ground cover.
I’m thinking of getting a tall planter for the door entry and putting the tall succulents there instead, then getting the ones I think I should have gotten for the bed.
