The hill in front of our house has long been the worst blemish on our humble abode. Erosion has pocked the areas where too much sunlight prevented the ground cover from flourishing. The areas where plants managed to take root were not much better.
No more. This week my father and I completely dug out the hill, discovering roots, pipes, bricks and lots and lots of clay. When we are finished, the slope will be transformed into three terraced planting beds. While this will definitely improve the curb appeal of our home, it has unfortunately siphoned most of my time and all of my energy for writing new blog posts.
We will be back on Monday for a full week of new content, including an exclusive interview with the Young Dubliners and reviews of the Pieta Brown and Michael Franti and Spearhead concerts.
