Here's a list of projects I have planned for this summer.
- Make a wide, curvy path from my patio to the garage door. Currently, the only walkway is right by the fence, and frankly I'm tired of being scared to death by the squirrels that hang out there. (the link is an old picture which does not depict the current state of my backyard, but it does show the current walkway.)
- Paint my two rain barrels and install them in the front garden. This is one of those projects that was supposed to be done last year. Not doing this probably cost me one of the azaleas I have planted in the side front garden. I have no spigot in the front.
- Move the peach tree, either to a different place in the backyard or completely off the property. I planted it too close to the house and I don't think it gets enough sun there. Plus, it's too big.
- Have the air conditioner unit moved down to where the peach tree is currently planted to make space to expand a portion of the patio for the barbecue grill.
- Stain the pergola.
It may not seem like a long list but I could agonize over that wide curvy path the entire summer! You know how I am.
