Spring is here! Gardening time

Today, I woke up in a weird mood. Ok. I’m exhausted. I have not been sleeping well at all, but I didn’t let that stop me. So I headed to my home away from home, Home Depot. A few weeks ago, my dad and I took all the plants out of the front yard. It looked amazing just having those dead ugly thorn bushes gone!

I found some pretty plants, and got to planting 🙂

I know it doesn’t look like much, but the before is NOT good. I even had several neighbors tell me how they were glad that those bushes are gone haha. me too!

I planted a bunch of perennials. I didn’t want to plant too much each year

I do have a few pots on the front porch and on the deck in the back

Also, I picked up a hibiscus for mother’s day for my mom

I also got the grass cut and trimmed. Lots of time outside, which helped my spirits a lot!

(sorry for the bad pics. all taken from my phone. oh well!)

Question for you:

Do you like to work out in the yard?
Do you grow any of your own fruits, veggies, or herbs?
