Last weekend, we decided to tackle the jungle bush in the front yard. Unfortunately, the azaleas could not be saved. After digging deep, we found a huge wisteria vine and poison ivy ropes bigger around than my thumb. We got tired of battling the ivy and always having to cut it back, so we pulled everything up! That did not go over very well with our neighbors since they know the azaleas have been here 50+ years.
Yesterday, I decided to paint the top of the porch rail black. I like how it came out. I procrastinated for so long because I could not envision it. It is not easy to paint over black if you change your mind. But, I am very pleased with the outcome.
