Happy Friday! We’re kicking off a long weekend here, and I’m so looking forward to catching up on some yard work (if weather permits), as well as taking some time to recharge after a busy couple of weeks. It’s been raining on and off for the last 2 days, making our grass and trees really green up- yay! Our spring was late arriving, but it looks as though it was worth the wait. I was worried about the perennials I planted last fall in front of the porch surviving the winter, but I’m happy to report all is good!
The ornamental grasses and atomic lilac are supposed to get at least a few feet high, filling the front porch area in and softening the hard edges a bit. Now I just need to finish up the decorative details I didn’t get to last year before the cold weather hit. Perhaps a chair or bench, and definitely a rug and some potted plants. That’s on the top of my to-do list for this weekend.
A big thanks to all of you who joined our Plants & Flowers link party as part of the Outdoor Extravaganza. I’m definitely inspired to plant a raised bed garden next year! There’s still time to share a project of your own.
