It's hard to see it in the picture above, but each found a new home in the corners of the yard. I had gotten a weeping pussy willow tree over the winter that I planted yesterday into a whiskey barrel and decided that daisies (my favorite bloom) would be a perfect companion. I decided to go with Gebrera daisies and African daisies in pots. The space behind the wheel needed something so I planted some variegated grass that should grow at least 48" tall.
I filled up the new birdbath and bird feeder - isn't this adorable?
And I potted the plants for the wheelbarrow, even though I really just wanted to fill it with dirt and plant directly in it! I decided it's better to be able to change things up quickly while protecting the wood... Kindly ignore the lack of grass in this corner. We're still waiting for it all to come back in after all of the dirt from the fence posts being dug settles.
This is the view from my home office window, along with the Dogwood tree I planted last year. I can't wait until everything gets all full and bright!
Then, I had to move to the deck. I fill the deck boxes and planters every year, and every year, they die. Let's hope for better luck this year! Just about everything has some Impatients tucked in just for good measure. They're hidden under the taller plants to get the shade they love.
I love this time of year, even if I can't breathe. The flowers, the green, the cooking out! I hope you're also having a great Spring! And to the moms - Happy early Mother's Day!
