Cleaning my house (X and the kids finally re-orged Matt's room last night) and working on the yard & garden, getting all spiffy for Spring. Since I was in that car accident last year my yard and house really became a low priority and started looking pretty shabby, and not in that shabby chic way! LOL We've been working on the front yard for about 2 months now and I feel like it is finally looking the way I wanted it to after 2 years here.
While I was at Reflections my last Rosemary bush in my front yard went on strike and dried up–must have been really hot up here! Anyways, I had one empty pot that the cat was using for a napping spot and then one sad pot with a stinky dried up Rosemary in it so I went to Lowe's this AM with Matt and got some new plants. I also added some wildflower seeds to the pots to help fill in the blank spots. Hope they come up soon! Here's some of the flowers:
Not too spectacular but I really like poppies and the colors are so very “Spring”. Hope those wildflower seeds work! I used a combo of Target $1 spot seeds from 2 years ago, some seeds I bought today, and some seeds I got from the Wacom both at CHA — something has to grow! LOL Talk about budget gardening, right?!
I also replaced some of the plants in my landscaping that had died last year with new ones — the same plants to keep it all cohesive, Salvia and Spanish Brush. And I weeded again. I feel like I have to weed everyday! LOL
So after making a huge mess with dirt all over the place (Matt did his fair share in helping) I decided to spray off my whole front porch, driveway, and sidewalk. I soon learned that Smooch Spritz does not like to come off of concrete.
*just not on the concrete! lol
One thought on “"Springing" Up my Yard”
Looking forward to seeing all your new pretty flowers you planted.
