We had an early work day today of 7:30-3:30 so I had a nice long evening and took advantage of it by planting all of the flowers I purchased on Monday. This year I decided not to do a big mix of various types of flowers and opted for all petunias. They did the best last year and so I didn't want to mess with the others that didn't do as well. I bought various shades of pinks, purples and mixed them with white. I filled all 11 flower pots I have too. It looks great! I even put my big planter pot on our front porch this year. I had spray painted it last year but it was after I did all my planting so it didn't get used. It matches our house so great too since it was originally a beige shade and I spray painted it with the same can I used on my light switches in the living room which was a bronze/brown mix. I didn't spray it solid so some of the beige would show through. It pairs lovely with the shutters and trim we selected last year. I was so excited! I also did some sporadic clean up in different areas of trimming down plants, etc. Peter joined me in working on trimming branches of the trees that scrape against the house. I am so pleased with all the work we've been able to get done so far and it's still early Spring! I've taken a bunch of "before" pictures so that we can compare when all is done.
