March 27th, I received the email from my neighbor that his loft apartment will be part of the 2014 FW AIA (American Institute of Architects) Home Tour April 26th and 27th. Yicks! Four weeks.
Nice article in our local glossy magazine: http://www.bluetoad.com/publication/?i=202453 Skip on over to page 86 for all the details for our location.
I especially liked this paragraph in the article: No pressure.
This was June 2013
This has been one of those winters you have your fingers crossed that things will return from their roots. Most everything in the loft garden was looking pretty dead. All I could do was determine what I absolutely knew was dead and replace it with something big and colorful for the tour. (Many of the perennials are just barely peeking out today.)
It was a bit of work getting it all whipped into shape and I am now calling it "done". (If I go outside, I am certain there will be something I must fix.) Now, off to make a proper dinner and early to bed for once in a month... not before Mr. FW Dirt takes some photos this evening. I promise to share the "before" and "afters".
