Welcome to my island, which I've named
~ Fairy Island ~
We went from the house we built on a small lot
to a 30+ year old home on almost 2 acres.
~Which came with a concrete pond and an island~
but oh it did not look like this
last year when we moved in. Below is the "BEFORE"
Solid green scum, debris and a huge mound of blackberry bushes.
and no way to get out there unless you trudged through the green muck.
Of course, what would be the point of getting out there anyway,
to a forest of prickly blackberrys!
But after much work mostly on my husbands part,
(including a bridge to the island)
I planted flowers in pots and decorated the oasis.
Even the ducks were overwhelmed by too much scum!
And there was no going onto an island of thick weeds.
At one time this place had beautiful grounds, but
had suffered neglect for a few years.
is a place of beauty and whimsy!
At the end of August I will be showing the renovations
we did to the house and gardens,
with 'before' and 'after' photos.
I hope you will come back to view more transformations!
