Creative Slump?

Yeah, that would be me. Not just a creative slump, just in a slow funk right now when it comes to the business. The weather outside is so amazing right now! I just can't be spending all my time inside at the sewing machine, can I? The past few days I have been outside working on the yard, the landscaping, trying to remove the past 20 years of neglect that the previous owners so lovingly left for us to repair...

I'm in a state of mind to just rip everything out and start from scratch. But, no, I think that would make the house look awfully naked this winter! Since this is our first spring and summer in our new house, I have been trying to let things come up as they will - you never know what perennials will be rearing their pretty heads, and it would be a shame to lose them just because I'm impatient.

However, spring yielded not a single daffodil or tulip. It appears as though the previous owners did nothing short of mowing the lawn. I think there is more grass at this point in the flower beds than anything else.

It's an adventure, if nothing else!

Last fall, as part of our entire house renovation (before we moved in), we ripped out the old sidewalk and put in a new one. We have yet to fill in around the walk with dirt, let alone any plants. Our front flower beds look like a construction zone! We're hoping to at least get some fill dirt, top soil, and mulch in there over the next week or so. Then at least it will look somewhat presentable to any summer visitors we might have.

House renovations are soooooo slow, aren't they?

Sorry - no pictures in this post.
