a little red here... a little red there

Remember this area? There were weeds and rocks and the grapefruit tree.
We continued it down to the side walk - this was just grass and the palm tree. We found that mulch at Home Depot - the expensive $10 a bag tire mulch!!! 15 bags for $4.00 - total! They had some bags in the back that had some tears - we bought all they had. When she said $4.00 we got it in the truck as fast as we could :)
Oh... see the neighbors finished guest house across the street? Two years later and we are still working on our (ummmm..... some day).

So, I painted the little bridge.

And I had paint left over - so I painted the bench.

And still had more paint - so I painted one of the gates.
The gates are by the barn/guest house.

Guess what I'm painting next?

The red really just catches the eye and yet still blends in and makes things fit together. Love the red!
