This time of year we spend most of our time outside…
grilling, working in the yard, or just hanging out.
I absolutely love spring time and The Mister has really made our garden lush and inviting.
We undertook a few new projects and made some additions, big and small.
The first thing that we did this year was add to our existing pea gravel and flagstone patio.
We decided that we wanted to have a spot for our little glass topped table out in the yard.
I really like how it turned out and it gives us even more entertaining area.
We also removed a bed of azaleas around our huge River Birch tree and replaced them with
The Mister’s Buddha Bed.
We are beyond excited with the end result of this bed.
We have 3 different varieties of Japanese Maples (Tamukeyama, Crimson Queen, and Waterfall) and a Traveller Weeping Redbud tree.
We also added perennials and lots of color.
This fish fountain (originally from my Mother-In-Law’s backyard) adds a perfect spot of color and provides a habitat for a wide variety of visitors.
Irises, umbrella plant, and potted herbs.
We made a few changes on the covered patio area including a new-to-us glider, a new chair and ottoman, and some peacock blue cushions.
I’m seriously in love with the color.
Everything is really starting to grow and bloom,
really making me want to be outside more and more.
