OK here’s the DL on the back space. The space above is the area in question. I’m thinking of putting a raised garden in or a modern easy to take care of mostly hardscape area. There are pluses and minuses to both options. Here’s a little visual of what I have in mind.
Here’s a little peek into the rest of it. The pocket I was taking about in between the masonry wall and the fence. This is where I planted some jade and left the geraniums that weren’t ravaged by mold this winter. The mason wall is the wall I want to paint white. I’ve been wanting to paint it for some time, but after many visits to the Ace Palm Springs, it’s decided.
Also I thought y’all might want to meet my chicken substitutes, Oscar and Felix. They are prison gay and Oscar lost his foot from a freak swing accident last winter.

😀 — poor Oscar, but that bit about your chicken subs is HILARIOUS.
Anyway, I have that same garden photo in my inspiration file. A graphic designer's garden, no? Probably a great bet for your yard, as you can tailor each "quadrant" to the particular sun reality. I think you could marry the two: work a raised bed (or two) into the hardscape concept… very chic.

i can't wait to see what you do with the space! and thanks so much for reading my most recent post—felt different writing it–vulnerable for sure–and means so much to have your feedback that you got something from it!!

Ha we are having a total conversation via blog comments! LOVE IT:) if you mean you are about to go down the road I'm going on in terms of certain healers you might want to see I am so here for you if there's anything you want to know more about. All I know is abundance thinking is so key; and if I fall off the wagon it's OK, just do what I can to bring myself back. And WOW what a time to trust–not just in powers bigger than me but in ME. Which is ALWAYS a gift, no? sending so many good thoughts your way. XOX
