I haven't been posting often lately mainly because I have been feeling less than great. Nevertheless, life goes on, and my DH has been working on re-doing my garden shed. It will be smaller than before but the big garden 'tools' like the hedge clipper, even spades and rakes etc.. will not be inside any more. They will hang on the outside, under the overhang on the right of the picture. The door will now be where the small window was before.
And the door was found just today at Habitat for Humanity. They had a lot of glass doors and they were priced at $75. Not in MY budget. I noticed some had small cracks and encouraged DH to go see if they would sell one for cheap. Yes, this one went for $25. The fact that it is an interior door doesn't matter because it won't get rained on and the crack doesn't matter to me either.
Next on the list was trying to find a mistint paint in a turquoise or aqua colour. I had my heart set on painting the inside a nice bright aqua. I thought we'd have to wait a long time to find it but no... found it at the lumber yard today and instead of costing $42 it cost me a mere nine dollars. On this pic the colour looks more green than aqua but it really is more to the aqua or even turquoise.
This is what my garden shed looked like last year... obviously it must have been Spring because that Clematis blooms in Spring. Having the door on this side will be a lot handier because the door was near the part of the building that is DH's workshop and he tends to have piles of wood there.
The metal gate on the left was also a pain because I had to make sure I closed it every time I went through because of a certain Black Lab that would sneak into the flower beds. Probably looking for Slug bait which he would cheerfully eat. and get very sick.
I can hardly wait until the yard looks like this again. It's plus 7 C. today ( 44 F.) so perennials are starting to grow and also Daffodils and Crocus. I have several small clumps of Snowdrops. They haven't spread as much as I would want but they appear each year so that's good.
Thanks for coming by. I love comments so don't hesitate to leave one. Although I don't answer each one like some faithful bloggers do, I read and enjoy each one that is left.
