Over the weekend the husband and I spent some time planting new plants and flowers in our front yard. The guy who built our back deck gave us a heads up that a nursery that normally only sells to professional landscapers would be having a sale over Memorial Day weekend where anyone could buy stuff. So we made the 45 minute drive to get some gorgeous plants. And we got lost. But then we found it.
It was so hot I nearly died…but it was worth it because we scored some good deals. We also went to a local nursery and got some pretty flowers for the front porch. My requirements for flower purchases are as follows: 1. Look pretty 2. Be really hard to kill
Welcome to our home!
I found these three lanterns at Home Goods a couple of months ago. They were gray so I panted them black and stuck big chunky candles in them. So cute!
Pretty red flowers. The husband isn’t a fan of the iron bunny, but I like him. When my mom first bought him for us the husband didn’t even notice him for a few days. So in my book, that means I can keep him!
The husband planted the five smaller bushes you see in this photo (well, the one in the center is red, so it doesn’t show up so well…but it’s there). We really need something that will grow really big (the back two) and be easy to care for. Then I put together the hanging baskets…..nursery’s charge like $15 for a hanging basket…no thanks, I’ll make one myself for less!
And do you see someone looking through the window on the left?
Here, I’ll zoom in for you. Wrigley was really concerned that we may be having fun outside without him.
