So the house comes with a sizeable back porch that is accessible from the kitchen. It looks out onto the backyard which is a mess and we are not allowed to go there. The porch has a lot of potential. When I arrived it was completely closed in with white – actually black from years of exposure to city air – plastic trellis.
This trellis shut out virtually all the light and was filthy. So we took it down; to the Landlady’s displeasure. We then bought some planters and put in two Potato Vines and one Jasmin that will I hope clamber all over the space to create a wall of greenery. Remaining space in the planter is filled with red Busy Lizzies. Whether they will prosper I know not. They don’t get much sun and there has been a lot of wind. Fingers crossed.
I intend to clean the porch up and use it as a evening out door meal space. Maybe BBQs hmmm.
