That means it's time to bring those potted plants back outside to soak up the sun. It's also time to get some color in our flower bed!
First of all, I just found out about Rivers, a local greenhouse. My friend, Tina, introduced me to them. Thanks, Tina, for giving me a new place to spend my money! They have a TON of plants and flowers to choose from and they are very helpful. I love that they are a local mom-and-pop place.
We left with some petunias, marigolds, salvia, verbena, and other plants whose names escape me.
Our dogs love the garden and when we turn our heads, they really love seeing how long they can prance around in it. So, we bought some cattle panel and used tree limbs we had in our yard to secure the fence.
|I like that it looks rustic.|
|I made this sign to match the rustic fence posts.|
I love Elephant Ears! They are my favorite plant to date. They are massive and beautiful and have no problem staying around and multiplying.

While I wait for my seeds to sprout, I got some lemon balm and lavender to make our carport smell fancy. They are supposed to deter mosquitoes, so we'll see how that goes.
Thanks to Pinterest, I found this cute way to set up my herb pots. I secured the rebar in the ground and just stacked my pretty pots on their side. I made another sign to match my herbs.
|This is what I see when I arrive home. It makes me happy.|
