Bloggingham is under a sheet of ice. For the past three days! I am sick of it and itching to get out into the sunshine. More wintry weather is on the way tomorrow. The temps this morning were sub zero (-7 wind chill)!!! This is NOT pencil skirt weather. It's time for thermals and fleece PJs, my Bloggy People. I couldn't sleep last night. I needed to look forward to the wonderful prospect of Spring. Snuggled under the electric blanket, I stayed awake reading and googling the exciting subject of DIY French Drains and Landscaping. Eureka!
It's not hard at all. Not expensive. Quite effective. Just need a lot of elbow grease and determination.
Don't worry, Pookie Dog.
We have to wait until the ice melts before we can start another project.
I will not be wearing my pencil skirt
I researched all kinds of DIY projects last night whilst the sub-zero wind howled outside, envisioning what beautiful spring lawn remedies and adventures I could contemplate. All this crazy ice has made me crave Spring. The natural area needs naturalizing again, the weeds behind the potting shed need weeding again, the backdoor needs painting, and Bloggingham needs another backyard drain to redirect water flow somewhere other than my flower garden. What IS the perfect solution?
The beauty of the French Drain.....
Did you know that a french drain is also called a weeping tile? How poetic!
