Our House On The Corner
We bought this house 11 years ago in "as is" condition. It was surrounded by half dead hedges, had a weed lawn, peeling ugly blue paint, a few shrubs worth saving and the inside was filthy from years of neglect. I can recall saying "only an idiot would buy this house". But the light inside was beautiful enough for us to look past the flaws. The yard was the first priority for me and I was mowing the weeds before the moving van had left the street. Now, when I come around the corner I am glad for the lapse in judgment that made this house our home.
The Tao that can be spoken may not be the Tao, but the Zen that can be seen is definitely “on trend”. YardShare members Tracy and Wendy Evans show us how it’s done with their lovely landscape in Hurricane, Utah.
