It is definitely the time of year to get out in the backyard and try to clean and spruce things up a bit. We don't have a really large yard, but I do want the flowerbeds to have a little color. So time to weed out and refresh things. Yesterday we took a trip to the nursery and bought a few things so today has been planting day. I can't believe the red and purple petunias are left over from last year and still blooming.
I like to fill in bare spots with pots of color. A tall cyliner pot holds 3 new trailing Calibrachoa. I chose salmon, yellow and purple colors to intermingle as they grow and drape over the side.
Another yellow one in a small cylinder pot. (Yes, that's wiring for lights, which we havn't installed.)
I've also been pulling out and rearranging pots with all kinds of plants in them. I like to mix the flowers and the desert plants together.
Maybe a pot in between the two cylinders.
My crazy frog got washed and he's peeking out from behind the bush. There's also another cylinder with a geranium.
Can you believe these are left over from last year. This is the section I am tackling next, some cleanup of the area and a few more plants.
Just these two to plant today and I can rest. Hubby has a bunch of cactus and succulents he is planting, so I will leave all of that to him.
OK, at least this corner is looking a little better. Now if the rest of the yard looked this good I would sit on the patio and have some iced tea. Ok, back to work, the tea will have to wait. lol
So how about you, are you trying to get your yard in shape too. There's always a ton of work to do in the spring.
