Easy Ways to Replace Destroyed Ivy

03 May, sounds informative. A simple way to replace ivy is to buy more and replace it.
Loki likes to chew on things (just the other day she chewed through a cheap door @ my moms place while we went out for dinner for example) and a couple of months ago she chewed through the base of our ivy on the trellise..and it did not look like it was coming back so we doubled down on ivy as a replacement. Hopefully her knawing ways are behind her..bets anyone? While we were at it we also added a couple of more decorative grasses and changed the current new zealand wintergrass. Great thing about decorative gardens, they are easy to switch around. As a result we don’t worry too much about initial plant locations but make slow adjustments as we go (not all the time or anything but early and late in the seasons..and July)..which I guess is the way we do most of our projects…indecision is the key to flexibility afterall.


The chickens get an all too rare reprieve and race to the horse manure remnants from last year. We LOVE have them penned and letting them out when we want. Amazing.




..and A* has a romantic meal with jango and Loki in front of a warming (returned) chiminea. I one the other hand sat at the slab table to make sure the height and everthing was ok. Plus it was cold out.

..needless to say the yard is in a state right now.
