As soon as the temperatures started to climb,
I started thinking about what I wanted to plant . . . of the garden centers I want to visit.
With all of this crazy weather of snow one day and warm temperatures a couple days later,
one cannot think of the days of Spring to come.
The very first thing I do when there are no more threats of frost,
I head to the garden center and buy 12 hanging ferns, eight for the back veranda and
two for the front porch and two for the upper back porch. Its says, Spring has come to the South!!
I cannot wait to sit in one of these rockers with the ferns swaying in the breeze.
To see the flowers popping up from the ground and the new ones that we will plant.
This photo was taken in the Spring of 2013 . . . as in 2014, my hydrangeas did not bloom!
So I am crossing my fingers and hope that they bloom this year!
I cannot wait to bring the back yard and the veranda back to this look of Spring.
To see more photos of the back yard and veranda you can see it, here.
This was a harsh winter for this area and knowing that I lost some of my plants and trees,
it will be fun to plan the garden again and look forward to lots of color.
I will be making over my potting bench as I do every year.
Gathering pots . . . and making a new skirt for the bench.
I change out the skirt each year for a new fresh look. The chair may get a facelift too!
Touches of Spring on the front porch last year.
I am planning on how I am going to decorate my porch for Spring. So stay tuned for that!
I have three porches and this is the one that I change out the most . . .
as it is visible from all rooms of the main living area.
I wish you all a fast approaching Spring . . .
So that we can see these beauties pop up to say hello!!!
