Now, I used to have grass around my patio area. It had started to recover from the dogs fertilizing it for about a year. It was green. Ok, it was also long and full of weeds. But it was green. I like green. Apparently the weeds offended both my husband and the landscaper. I came home the one day to find that all my lovely green was gone and I was stuck with this absolutely horrid colored wood chip stuff.
Ugly doesn’t begin to describe it. I would haul it out and replace it with something else – anything else – crushed gravel, wild flowers, weeds, artificial turf. But I am too cheap to wind up paying again to fix something that is totally functional, but ugly. Oh, so ugly. And do not, under any circumstances attempt to walk on this stuff in your bare feet. You have been warned. What I really wanted, to tell you the truth, was the whole area paved.
Anyway – that poor lonely flamingo was the last one – which is why I suspect he was so cheap.
Now, anyone going in or out of the door gets to be treated to a bit of whimsy along with those ugly chips.
