Hello my friends, yesterday the weather was absolutely gorgeous and hubby and I spent the day spreading mulch.
While we were at it I planted some Canna and Gladiola bulbs, and sprinkled a few Zinnia seeds.
At the end of the day I was feeling a little tired, but I perked myself up by throwing a little planting party.
Yeah, I was the only one to attend, but it sure was fun! lol!
I visited three nurseries this week and boy was it ever delightful. Just walking inside and seeing all of that beauty brings a smile to my face!
I love planting my vintage containers.
This old spreader received a fern, marigolds, impatiens, and a trailing Petunia.
I scored this sweet thing at last weeks get away to St. George.
I kept it simple and filled it with Snapdragons.
This little ice cream bucket gets filled with impatiens every year. It's about the only thing that will thrive in that small space.
I've got lots more to do, but what a fun start!
I bought this cute yellow stool at a yard sale in St. George as well.
Perfect to hold one of my minnow buckets!
I love the pretty leaves of this variegated impatiens.
This morning I decided to hang the begonia planter with the bow on the old door out on the front porch.
It has a flat back and hangs nicely.
I stepped outside and went to remove the Forsythia wreath that I had on there.
Well my friends, that wreath isn't going anywhere. . .it was really hard to see, but a bird has made it's nest on the top of it.
Hubby stood on a stool to get this picture.
But look at this one.
See what I mean about hard to see? Smart bird hid her nest well!
A peek inside revealed one tiny little blue egg.
I hope to hear chirping out there soon!
Finding this just made my day a little bit brighter!
