|This is what 'potential' looks like!|
|As soon as I replace the fence and rip out the grass, this will be an herb garden.|

All in all, we lucked out. We got an affordable home with no serious problems, and our real estate agent had the patience and integrity we needed to move forward with the sale. However grungy the house looked a few weeks ago, it's now almost as good as new and ready for all of the fun projects we have in mind; whether it's a backyard veggie garden, a cottage-style kitchen, a citrus hedge, new trim, a Florida native garden, a cheery art studio, or hummingbird and butterfly gardens outside our kitchen windows. I'll still maintain the gardens at the apartment complex every weekend, but there's something to be said for having total creative reign. We're going to have a lot of fun.
