This means that it's my turn to start making it pretty!!
We spent some time at our local home improvement store yesterday and the kids and I enjoyed some time exploring the garden center.
I found oodles of flowers I'd love to plant around the house.
I kinda fell in love with these planters- I'd love to somehow incorporate a giant teacup and teapot into my garden. They're too expensive for our landscaping budget at $30 each, though.
I'm not one to have statues and decorations in my garden or yard. But this guy was pretty tempting. His price tag kept me from buying him ($70- and that was on sale!) but he's adorable and funny!
I also picked up some seed packets. One is all wildflowers but haven't decided where I want to plant them. I bought another pack of seeds that has 4 packets inside it and is designed to create a pretty climbing garden to put around my lamp post.
I also need to plan out my produce garden. And I think we need a second raised bed this year. I'd also love for him to build a staircase off the other side of our deck so we can more easily access that side of the yard and also avoid the side that the dog currently uses for "business." We'll see how much project Jeff wants to take on, I guess!
How are your outdoor plans coming along this season? We aren't big gardeners or outdoor workers but I love being inspired by gardeners and crafty, building types who do ongoing cool outdoor projects! Inspire me!
And can you believe it's MAY already???
