Spring has sprung in south GA…although the weather is still a little chilly on some days (like today). I have a love/hate relationship with spring!!! I love the loveliness of spring with all the flowers & budding trees, but oh how I HATE THE POLLEN!!!
Plus, I know that our spring quickly turns into a very hot summer…and I hate HOT!!!
Spring also brings with it a LOT of projects. So here are some of the ones I’ve been tackling recently. The yard still has a way to go…pine straw for the flower beds is next on the list. Probably ought to transplant some more HOSTAs but OH MY GOSH…that’s a very difficult & tiring job!!! Here are a few photos showing what I’ve been up to….
LOTS OF PAINTING! I love birdcages & metal pieces for our yard and porch. Also included were 2 glass-topped tables and 2 chairs for the deck. Thank goodness for SPRAY PAINT, but it’s still not my favorite thing to do!
Another “un”-favorite is CLEANING! Between the winter weather and the spring pollen, there’s a lot of scrubbing going on☹
LOTS OF PLANTING GOING ON!😊 I love Gerber Daisies!
The HOSTAs are beginning to wake up and reach for the sun. I really need to transplant some, but it is definitely one of the most difficult of garden chores…in my opinion! I like to put hostas in pots…I’ve had luck with that so far.
We have a large wrap-around porch on 3 sides of our house plus a medium-sized deck. I love to DECORATE them both. Got 2 cute bird pillows from Wal-Mart the other day…$5 each. Got the 2 beautiful pillows on our swing last year from Dollar General…$6 each. (I love a bargain!)
RED is definitely the color I go with for our deck. The kitchen color scheme is yellow with red & blue accents, and we have large windows that look right onto the deck and the backyard pond.
Love my Chicken Planter:)
And, of course, a little EASTER decorating!
As the cooler weather goes by the wayside, and the days of spring encourage us more and more outside (once the pollen has gone!), hopefully my yard will show the results of all my hard work. (Photos from previous years!)
So…what have you been doing to WELCOME SPRING in your neck of the woods?
HAPPY SPRING !
