Resurrection of the Potting Shed

Just before Hurricane Harvey, David and I rushed to get everything 
around the house as secure as possible.  Our little garden shed, tucked 
behind our garage in a private little enclave, became the catch-all 
for everything related to the yard.  

Despite the eight straight hours of category 4 hurricane winds, this
little shed was safe and sound.  It wasn't even missing a shingle from
it's roof.  I love this little shed even more now.  It's a tough little haven.

I have spent quite a bit of time fussing around the patio and the 
veranda, and this little shed was being ignored.  I spent yesterday
and this morning beginning the clean up around it and giving it 
the tender loving care it deserves.  

I raked and cleaned little beds.  I replanted a sad rose bush.  I put down
new mulch.  

I put some herbs in pots and added some flowers for color too.

It's a start.  I am trying to keep this spot functional as well as pretty.  I am careful to
work one area at a time so that I don't give up in frustration.  The next thing I need to
do is get rid of the poison ivy that has decided to grow up the fence that separates this
area from the rest of the yard.  I went on YouTube and learned the best way to do
this without exposing myself to any of the dreaded oil that causes the rash.
I keep telling myself ~ I am brave.  I can do this!  Wish me luck.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Your shed is one tough shed, not losing even one shingle in the storm. You have transformed the area around it to a cute little patio and garden spot.

  2. It looks nice! Makes me want to work in the yard, except it's in the high 90's here. :) I would melt.

    "Despite the eight straight hours of category 4 hurricane winds, this

    Wow! Next hurricane, you know where to hide out!

  3. It's looking really pretty. I have never had poison ivy, and hope I never get it.

  4. I love your little shed and I know you can conquer that poison ivy just be careful!

  5. Hi! New to your blog! That shed is absolutely adorable, and I'm so happy for you that it survived Harvey!

  6. Hi! I am your newest follower. I love your adorable little shed. I've been holding out for one, but I also want a little greenhouse so I've been combing Pinterest for ideas on maybe combining the two. But I agree with you.... get one area done before you start another so you feel like you accomplished something. It took me a few years to learn that, lol! I had projects here, there, and everywhere and overwhelmed myself. Now I plan and execute one area at a time. I love how you use the empty clay pots in your decorating and the flowers are beautiful. It's looking good!
