One of my favorite things about spring is the flowers. Despite my black thumb, I can't help myself around nurseries this time of year. I picked up another rose bush since I didn't kill the one from last year and some blue salvia. I love the combination of these colors. It reminds me of a cottage garden even if it's only in one corner of my flowerbed.
It's also the perfect time of year for sitting on the front porch and admiring all of your hard work. After we planted these, my husband and I sat in the rockers while our little guy played in the sprinklers. We've gotten a bout of cooler weather since then, but I'm sure it will warm up again soon.
My flowerbox desperately needed some attention, too. I decided to go with red geraniums and petunias for high impact. The geraniums are nice and tall so you can see them, and the petunias will cascade over the side of the flowerbox as they get a little bigger. I tucked a little greenery in with them too for variety.
My five year old is the lucky one that gets to have these outside his window. Not a bad way to wake up.
And, every time I turn on our street the color catches my eye and makes me smile. I'm so glad I went with bright colors. Now, let's just hope they last!
