Independence Day Clean-up

Five years ago Charlie and I cleared out the woodland garden by the shed.

The garden to the left of the Wee Little House looked great in 2012.

It was a lovely beginning.

The clutter on the down side of the shed has created an ugly mess.

Unfortunately it has become a jungle once again over the years while we concentrated on the house renovation.

We save some used plastic sheeting and got rid of an equal amount.

On the 4th of July my friend from the Cottage and I started to pull out some of the clutter and debris that had taken over the space.

Old plastic plant pots are taking over the area.

We hung up the 24-foot ladder on the back of the shed and threw out some old, unused plastic pots.

A small portion of this area has been cleared out.

Hopefully we can consistently continue to clear this area and reclaim the yard.

What are you saving that has become a clutter problem?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
