Our house is not much to brag about. (Unless you want to talk about the wood paneling in the living room. That is hot.) The backyard has some redeeming plantings. Some oregano, a butterfly bush, chives, and some late blooming flowers.I think the smoke smell is mostly out. I find butts in the oddest places. Kind of gross. I'm looking forward to planting some bulbs for spring. The weather just dipped, so I've got tulips on the brain. This poor house needs someone to love it.
