Seasons #2 – Early Season Planters

Seasons #2 – Early Season Planters

We only have three planters filled so far this year. It has been a rather tumultuous year for us, to this point, and we are just glad we were able to get done all that we did. As usual, I have a lot more that I want to do, so we will see.I mentioned in my container...

Seasons #1 – Transitions

Seasons #1 – Transitions

Spring transitions into summer in May here, sometimes early May and sometimes later in May, and it is just a delightful season. Spring blooming flowers are still in evidence, depending on variety. And early summer flowers are just beginning--for the best of both...

Early Bloomers

Early Bloomers

Our backyard was a hard fought victory. We had to contend with impervious red clay soil, all that was left after the builders scraped all the top soil off. Not only that, but they left a slope that slanted toward our house. There was literally nothing in our backyard...

More in my pots and containers series—I love window boxes. I mean, I really love window boxes. This is the second window box my hubby made and I love it. We both liked the first one, shown at the bottom of this page. But when we re-sided our home, we wanted a new...

Plenty of Pots

Plenty of Pots

I love pots! I can get as creative as I want. And this is the best way to add instant charm to a home or condo or an apartment or where ever you live. As you can see, I have everything from inexpensive clay pots to more expensive ceramic pots. There is a place for...

Flower Filled Fountains

Flower Filled Fountains

We had always wanted a fountain—love the sound of running water. When we saw this fountain on sale, we bought it and installed it close to our front porch, where we enjoyed it for several years. Then we decided to remove the old hedge along the foundation and, at the...
