on the other side

My husband created a make work project for himself. It involved moving a wide swath of gravel from the front of our house to the back where it will prevent mud from tracking in. The resulting dusty, barren area was quickly clothed with rolls of lush green grass and our front yard magically doubled in size.
One thing so often leads to another, and a pergola seems a natural, next step; Someplace deliciously cool and shady, a place to rest and escape the heat of summer evenings. Of course that will mean finding a table and chairs, and maybe a lantern or two.........Change can be exciting, and newness refreshes. Sometimes it's true, the grass IS greener on the other side.
