What's More Exciting Than a White Wall?

Two white walls.  Well, one and three-quarters white walls.

Tackled the basement laundry room this evening.  Sherwin-Williams' "Pearly White" with perlite added.  With a brush because the texture on the bricks has to be vertical to match the existing.  I don't trust myself doing it with a roller.

It looks really weird having that greeny-creamy-tanny-bricky wall white now.  I almost feel like I've obliterated an historical monument.  (I'll get over it.)

Knocked off when I ran out of gritty paint.  Brush was a mess anyway.  Good idea to finish up in the daylight when I can see the places I've missed.  Already noticed one when I was cleaning out the brush.

Anyway, what is more exciting than a white wall?   I mean, really?

A green vegetable garden.  And impatiens planted around the maple tree.

Unfortunately my yard is winning the battle of weeds this year.

The heavy rains and soggy yard gave them a head start and I haven't been able to catch up. A few beds still need to be weeded but the weeds have already gone to seed.
