I don't actually mind the rain, it just means more indoor days. And right now, we are itching to be outside! However, now that the rain is over, my flower garden is sprouting like crazy!
Last year, just before my parents moved off the farm, I raided my mom's garden...with her permission of course! She let me take whatever I wanted home with me to plant in my garden. Now that Spring has arrived, my garden is full of surprises!
While waiting for my flower garden to grow, I planted two large pots with flowers to set on my front step. For several years, I have been wanting to do this. I kept looking at pots, but anything that was the size that I had in mind was way out of my price range! And then, one day a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon these beauties when I wasn't even searching (isn't it funny how that happens).
My husband wanted to stop at London Drugs and as I walked down their seasonal section, I found these pots...and they were on sale! They were large. They were plastic, so despite their size, they are light. They look like concrete. They were only $30 each! So, of course they came home with me.
After a trip to Lowe's and a little dirt, I now have two smashing flower pots on my front step to greet our summer visitors. Every time I drive by to park in the garage, I slow down to take in their beauty!
What do you like to grow in the summer?
