In just under a month, our potted mums went from this:
To brown and dead looking. I’m not really sure what happened, but I’ll spare you a picture of the dead mums. I was so bummed that they turned brown so quickly.
I knew I couldn’t leave the brown mums on the porch if someone was going to look at our house for an appraisal. I went back to the Home Depot for new, blooming mums. I bought some of the last mums they put out for the season and this time I only bought one mum for each of the pots. The mums were on sale and I only spent around $15 dollars for three large mums, and two small mums.
It was $15 well spent because our front porch now looks like this:
In the process of giving our front porch a face lift, I busted out the trimmers and got busy cutting back the overgrown cherry bushes.
After some weeding and TLC, our gardens look less like a jungle and more like they are ready for winter.
We are still crossing items off of our “Show Your House Some Love for the Reappraisal To Do List.”
1. Weed the garden and replant the potted mums 2. Spruce up the loft so it looks like we use the space
3. Organize and clean the spare bedroom and BJ’s office
4. Finish the crown moulding and baseboard projects
Two down and two to go. More updates on our progress on the trim and organizing to come!
