I previously stated what a pathetic back yard I have, and I am not exaggerating, as proven by this photo. Yes, that is a satellite dish; an unused satellite dish, which I use for a bird feeder, but it looked so blah in its greyish color so I sprayed it a beautiful pastel blue. The tree in the foreground is an acorn tree and other than its gnarly branches it is non-descript in the winter.
The ground (mainly Georgia red clay) below the acorn tree is littered with acorn shells, so I have decided to bring the piles and piles of pine straw raked from the front yard to the back yard as a base upon which to apply my strategy of above ground container gardening. I want you to know this in advance so that you will be able to see the vast difference when I am finished.
This scenario, by the way, is what I view from 8 to 5 Monday-Friday while I work in my home office. I am also here sporadically on Saturday and Sunday while I catch up on my blogging and gaming, so you can see how important it is to have a pleasant view.
