Ok, I had an epiphany. My hubby and I are sitting in our backyard, he is having a beer, I, a martini. We had layed a couple more slate earlier and he had watered the plants.

There is a section of our yard that is 10 feet by maybe 30 feet. I haven’t been able to figure what I want to do with it. It gets the morning sun, afternoon shade. After two martinis it finally dawns on me.

“Oh my gosh! That’s it!!!” I said.


“The side yard!”

“What?!?” Poor thing, he was confused. He takes a couple puffs of his cigar.

“What I’m going to do with the side yard!”

“What’s that?”

“A goth garden! With the Mondo Grass, Black Widow rhodies I showed you and black irises and all those other black plants I showed you!! I can have my gargoyle sculptures and when the dogs die it can be their cemetary!…..Wait is that legal?”

“I believe so, in your own yard. I love the Mondo grass.”

He liked the idea. Oh my gosh, another project! I cannot wait! Below is the before, and once I’m done, it will look awesome!

Oh the simple things make me so happy! I cannot wait to get started and we have all summer! The yard is slowly coming together.

The patio is starting to take shape and my weeping curling tree is happier since we have transplanted it.

I might actually be at peace by the end of summer!
