As part of Pin It Do It February - thanks to Trish - I vowed to create two craft projects this month. Alas I have decided to drop one of the ideas - but I did come through with my spring wreath as pictured above. The original pin was for a 3.00 wreath - I may have had to spend a little more but certainly as far as wreaths go - it was very thrifty. An 11 x 14 inch frame that I already had and a sprig of two different greens - some yellow ribbon and I was set! I now have a complete years' worth of door decorations from Patriotic (summer), Scarecrow Wreath (fall) Christmas (winter) and now my spring green! Welcome to our home!!
I have been able to spend about an hour outdoors with the dogs this week after work - then I remember it is still winter and I'm cold - but today while playing some fetch and just having a good conversation with the dogs - I spied a couple of "green things" If you look real close - the sedum is coming back to life!! In an earlier post I talked about my plans to add some succulents to the garden this year - but these two specimens came with the house so I'm excited to see they are coming back!
Finally - I'd like to share some of the ideas I am working on for this summer's flower garden and patio. When we bought our new house last summer we found an old wash tub in the shed out back and I quickly threw some potted petunias into it and voila a flower garden - It was 110 in the shade and I didn't think I could start from scratch with new plants. This summer we are planning to do it right and get some soil - and hopefully end up with something like this . . .
