Weekend Recap

Spring has sprung in my backyard.

I love this new planter!  You might remember it from last week's Weekly Finds post.  In the top basket I planted a mixture of red salvia, dianthus, and marigolds; and in the bottom pot I have a mixture of riviera blue eyes (which are still going strong since the last planting) and purple petunias.  My backyard gets plenty of sun and these are all sun loving plants.  I have never grown the salvias or dianthus before so I am anxious to see how they do.

I revamped this hanging basket with a new insert and flowers (marigolds and petunias) and I planted some veggies this year!

This pot has tomatoes, bell peppers and pink petunias.  I hope I get some yumminess from here.

The only other news I have to report from the weekend is that the husband started on our spice rack.  I can't wait until it is fully completed so I can do a before and after post on it.  Our house was built in the 1930's and our kitchen has an old ironing cabinet in it.

I thought this space would re-purpose nicely into a spice cabinet.  After some of the husband's work this weekend I know I was right!

I can't wait to share the finished product with you!

Thanks husband for being so handy.  <3 br="">
