Oh my friends, I am so excited for Spring that I literally ‘Wet My Plants”! lol!
(notice the wet cement?)
Hubby came home from work one day last week and was so excited to tell me that phrase so I could use it on my next post. He had seen it on a sign at our local nursery. Isn’t it nice when others are looking out for us?
Some of my favorite Spring bloomers. . .Ranunculus, Primroses, and Pansies.
I planted the urns by the garage with a pretty pink and white flowering Kale and some Snapdragons.
I’m thinking that these should last clear into Fall and I can just tuck some trailers in around the edge in May. Of course I will have to keep pinching the Snapdragons back and I will cut off any bloom that comes up out of the Kale.
Now let’s see what else has got me excited for Spring. It rained yesterday, so naturally the umbrella came out. I made it a couple years ago.
Sweet little English Daisies planted in an urn are peeking out from a wire cloche.
I dyed the egg shells with Rit Dye the same time I was dying coffee filters for the wreath hanging on my door.
Pretty faux blooms spill over the edge of the umbrella. They almost look real, don’t you think?
I dipped stacks of the coffee filters in the dye. Afterwards I just threw them in the dryer and they came out in different shades of aqua.
I painted the rustic wooden eggs years ago. The dot theme is carried out with the ribbon on the umbrella.
Both the chair and the moss basket were thrift finds. I recently painted the chair yellow.
When I came home from a get away with friends my daughter Kylee had done the chalkboard art. I love it!
A touch of green grass in a vintage wicker basket. The duck was bought in Salzburg years ago.
Hyacinths planted in a metal pitcher will be transplanted into the garden for next year when spent.
Yup, I’m excited for Spring!
You can see where we have to build up the lawn where we redid our sidewalk that had settled.
Hope Spring has come your way!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
