Spring Projects

Last spring, I took advantage of our one-week spring break and worked on several projects for our yard. Unfortunately, I got too busy to blog about it, so here's hoping it's not that late! Here are just some of the projects I worked on.

I spiced up our front yard by adding some terra cotta pots. Doods and I bought several blue point juniper trees for the terra cotta pots and embellished it with colorful impatiens and petunias, oh and our neighbor gave us some yellow flowers (I forgot the name). I really like how the experiment turned out. Tadah! Teehee.


Anybody knows what these yellow flowers are called?

This second project did not require much. We have old hooks for solar-powered hanging lamps. I retired the old lamps (thry already turned yellowish!) and replaced them with these hanging baskets of petunias. Fortunately they are on sale to welcome spring -yay! There goes some dash of color!  Not bad huh.
I love working on the yard. The weather was perfect, not too cold, not too warm (like right now -too hot! Whew!) Doods and I love driving around the neighborhood to feast our eyes on other lovely creations -my neighbors have lovely gardens! I can't help noticing some address plaques that are so pretty! Am drawn to those gorgeous address signs. Wouldn't it be neat to have a classy address sign or even just an address plaque? I wish! Methink it's cool! :)

Your front yard looks fantastic. Love that pot with the Juniper. I don't know what the yellow flowers are but they remind me of buttercups.
