Since it looks like Iím not moving, or at least not moving any time soon, I think Iíll try and make my surroundings a little prettier. The first thing will be to get matchstick or bamboo blinds for the sides of the porch, both for shade and for privacy. Next, some hanging baskets with flowers like fuchsias, which attract hummingbirds and butterflies, so Iíll have flying flowers, too. Then, something to wend its way up the existing trellis. Finally, dig out the bed, bordered by bricks, thatís totally overgrown, and plant something if itís not too late to get started.
