This is "after." After adding a new screen door, painting the old wooden door (which I love) Cardinal Red, building a new front porch, adding three new flower beds, and all kinds of plants down the side of the house to soften how long it is and also to hide the utilities. I love, love what is planted there, especially....dappled willow, my Grandma White's asters, a HUGE butterfly bush.
I am hoping that this is the first of many posts! I am brimming with ideas right now, and determined to "laugh at the days (Prov. 31)."
