Getting the Chapel Ready

Sug has started clearing up the area around the cross for our Dedication in May.

I like how the benches and cross fade into the scenery.

She moved the Chippendale benches to the clearing near the back of the yard.

The area will be more colorful when the iris and daffodils begin to bloom.

Due to the pitch of the ground bluestone slabs were placed under the rear legs to level and stabilize the benches.

Our contact information has been masked behind the rectangle outlined in grey.

This week we’ll be distributing invitations to the dedication.

Have you been into your garden this spring?

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.

  1. The chapel area looks good. Yes, I’ve been digging out weeds and putting down mulch and looking at everything coming to life.

  2. It’s such fun to see gardens wake up in spring. I’ve gotten as far as raking the leaf mulch off the gardens and doing a bit of weeding … pruning the roses … so much more to go! But it feels great to get outside.
