Renovation...Take II

Yes, we've been here before...
The garden floor is still a mess, --but finally painted.

Super toxic paint on the stairs (I've finally gotten the hang of this paint for real).

Oh, super shiny. Walkable in a few soon as my head stops spinning.

In other backyard news...

The batisia bushes returned from last year, and I added some havana blue geraniums in the front.

New smell yet, but I'm in love with the color.

Lupine, also from last year and weirdly happy.

New addition of oak leaf hydrangea in the shady corner (where the magnolia lived and died).

 New Philadelphus Mock Orange, also no smell yet, but I have faith.

The beginning of another climbing rose (hoping it will climb the stair railing to the day)

A new snowball bush...

And wisteria from last year that I was sure was dead--somehow now better than ever before.
Stay tuned for what I hope will be rapid growth.

Doesn't look like much yet...

But here's the start of the vegetable garden...and if last year was any indication it'll all be as tall as me in a month.
Herbs in front followed by 5 tomatoes, 2 eggplants, 3 peppers...

And the little things in front are kirbies, and butternut started from seed.
