So close

Category: Just me, myself and I | Posted: Thu Aug 28, 2008 3:27 am

Well everyone I'm so close to having my yard and house just the way I want it. We just got new carpeting throughout the whole house. And in preparation for the carpet I got the hall and living room painted. It looks like a new house. I chose satin paint for them and have decided I like it so much better than flat paint which is in all the other rooms, so one day I will repaint other rooms with satin paint in the same color they are now. I know, I know it seems silly, but with little kids and a husband the walls get touched. Don't ask me how, I don't ever remember going through the house touching walls and stuff. Flat Paint just isn't as scrubable as satin.
As fro the back yard all the plants are in for the majority of theyard and we had a week of good rain so they are doing well. I bought two soaker hoses and wove them around the new plantings to help conserve water and make it less time consuming. All I have to do now is wait for them to grow. I still need to plant behind the deck but that will be next year.
I have to tell you in my last blog entry I posted a pic of my butterfly bush, which was doing fabulous. It has since had half of it die. It was finally starting to take a nice shape, but I think my DH watered it too much. It would droop in the hot Alabama sun, so he would water it every day, and the soil has alot of clay. So by the time I realized what was happening it was to late. I hope it will come back.
I'll post pics soon. I hope

Your Butterfly bush will come back.(just keep DH away from it LOL)Mine was looking pretty bad, so I did some trimming. WOW, what a difference. I even gave it a couple of Miracle-Gro plant spikes and added some fresh Miracle-Gro potting soil around it. It is now a very happy bush.

I am very glad that everything is coming together for you. It sounds very nice. (Like Sjoerd . . . we welcome you to "show off" your results.) I, too, like satin paint. I think walls get dirty no matter what, and it is so easy to maintain. We will say a special little prayer for that butterfly bush. I have clay soil too. (My Aunt Ruby used to call it "the curse of the south.") Everything sounds very nice, and we are tickled that you are getting things like you want them.
