Weekend Work One: Goodbye Harry Potter.

We said goodbye to the Harry Potter Garden – for now.

I dug up the Gillyweed, Devil’s Snare, Bubotuber, Mimbulus mimble-tonia, Puffapod, Flitterbloom, Alihotsy, Dittany and more over the weekend. They replanted temporarily for safekeeping in another part of the garden. It’ll all go back. We’re getting rid of the kid’s jungle gym and swing. It was here when we bought the house.

Our daughter is 16 and hasn’t even looked at it in years. A few neighborhood little ones use it. But that doesn’t justify keeping it – so it’s goodbye Mr. Potter and hello potting shed! I’ll post my potting shed plans at some point in the future. I’ve been researching potting sheds on Pinterest. I have too many ideas that have to get prioritized and narrowed down to what is realistically in my budget and weekend carpentry skills.

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business. Look me up at #jcharlier.

  1. Are you going to re-use the wood or have a bon-fire?

  3. Lynette's brother is coming to disassemble and take away. Other wise, I may have just re-used the lumber!
