Welcome to my garden...okay, it's really Martha Stewart's, but a girl can dream, eh?
It’s officially spring and we now have temperatures in the 80s. Shew! It’s going to a cool down a bit late this week though. Thank goodness, because I just planted some pansies and those flowers can’t take a heat wave.
I've been so ready for this weather. It’s good for the soul. Unfortunately, it does a number on my sinuses, since I live in Allergytown, U.S.A. Oh, well. I've learned to stock up on Clariton and Nasanex and go about my day.

I recently spent some time at a local nursery, shopping for flowers and new containers for our front porch. I have found that in the last few years, I could spend as much time in a nursery as I do in a bookstore. I love pouring over the many flowers and plants, the clay pots and planters, the quirky yard art. You name it. I’ll probably be that old lady in a big hat and my garden clogs someday, sitting on my little garden stool, planting flowers. Wait, I’m already that lady.

I love English gardens, so I hope I can create that look at various locations in our yard. I recently ordered bulbs from a school fundraiser and I can't wait to plan them, adding some color and dimension to our outdoor space. Our lawn is another story, though. It really needs some TLC. Here’s hoping Hubby can get on that in the coming days.
I love this clay pot, also from Terrain. A few of these placed outside, with greenery draping over the sides, would add a lovely look to one's home.
So, friends, have you done any spring planting lately? If so, what will your yard be showcasing this spring?
