Enjoying The Sun

It has been so warm and gorgeous out lately! Wowee! Instead of getting some lovely new outdoor chairs, I have been tasked as custodian for these simple fellas for the next two years. They were free, and they are comfier than they look.

And did I mention they were free? I mean, they're no awesome retro-looking ones, but a girl can dream eh!?

I love this time of year when I can start planning my garden, and buying plants, and watering things. My grass is still dead and brown...yuck...but I have loads of greenery bursting through in the other parts of my yard and that is giving me cause for hope!

Although I'm thinking of a serious revamping of the garden. I want to try and get some food plants in here this year. Oh my...wish me luck!
(Update: I planted tomatoes, lettuce and beans in containers out front and they are all doing very well!)

And now that I have four chairs, I have been thinking (more) about doing some outdoor entertaining! Maybe some patio lights are in order...really piss off my neighbours!

And some food for thought on this fine Friday...

P.S. I don't know where I can get my hands on any blood oranges, but I have lots of mint growing on my front step, and I am always up for a trip to the liquor store...

  1. I'm gardening for the first time in my life this year and the one thing I demanded we grow was mint, so that I can deem this the Summer of Mojitos. Yummmm.

    Good luck with the garden!!


I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a quick "Hello"...Comments make my day, dontcha know!
