and, I know I am rushing things on my
Little tender plants and flowers don't hold up very well
in a hot dry wind.
When I say WIND....it is not a BREEZE !!
20...30...40 miles per hour, many times.
Some of my friends might remember a couple of things
that the wind got us in a bit of trouble a couple of summers ago...
It took a lot of work to get these back on land...
those cushions soaked with water were HEAVY....
That wind took umbrella, table and all...
I had moved the plants to water them and, boy, I surely was
glad all those pots of soil and flowers didn't take the plunge !!
Dave and Mr. Sweet saved the day and brought it all ashore !
Athena The Beauty watched every move the guys made and
wondering, I'm sure, what the heck !!
ANYway, our winds are blowing most every day...
but I love my potting bench so much,
I just can't wait to get things going there.
A sweet grandgirl, Andrea, painted this sign for me and
I am SO IN LOVE !
I found this English Planter at HOME DEPOT
and thought it might look good on that pretty fence...
...lots of pretty plants that I hope will grow and fill this planter FULL
3 pots of LAVENDER that I'll plant in another pot.
I need to clean my red potting bench
and will do that when the hot dry winds give me a chance...
also will buy a pretty fern to go in the iron piece
that Mr. Sweet gave me one year for Christmas.
This fern was in 2016...
it is now in my house and has grown into a GIANT.
I know it isn't officially SUMMER
but we are having high 90's and even 101 is in the forecast
in the next few days
so to me.....IT'S SUMMER
at least I feel like I am getting a running start on making
my tiny outdoor space luscious and bright and pretty.
Love to all,
