Last year I started a landscaping project, next to the driveway. When we moved into our house almost nine years ago, this space was a beautiful butterfly garden. Over the years, the monkey grass took over! The first thing I did was clear the plot, it quickly turned from a simple project into a monumental task. And that was just clearing!
After nearly a week, I finally got my plot ready to be transformed. And it's still waiting. It's spring again, and I'm ready to get the job done. I would love for it to look like the second picture, or something similar. To be honest, I don't know what I want it to look like. What I do know is, I want it to be pretty, and inviting to butterflies again. Anything is better than exhibit "A."
I've said before, I DO NOT posses a green thumb, but I'm willing to try. Calling in professionals is not an option. I want this to be a DIY, project I can be proud of... even if it takes me all summer. Stay tuned!
