Today is the official start of summer.
Which means I have missed my window of opportunity.
Or is it passé?
My maternal Grandmother was quite serious about the yearly ritual. Even going so far as washing the walls.
I don’t think I have ever washed a wall.
Unless you count shower tiles.
Anyhoo, I had a plan last week to pick a small manageable area to Spring clean.
Which hasn’t seen a broom in well over a year.
Certainly this would make the Before & After pictures especially dramatic.
And isn't that the point - to have startling results?
Here is the BEFORE.
On a gloomy June morning.
Along with the camera, I should have brought a broom, scrub brush, some Simple Green, a garden hose, shears to trim the bougainvillea, additional potting soil and a few odds and ends to spruce things up.
But I didn't.
Still debating whether I should wait till next year or just go ahead and clean out-of-season.
