I love this time of year.
Every morning when I look outside,
I've been sprucing up the yard because we will be away for Easter and I want the garden to be a welcoming retreat for Lulu's sitter.
Buckets of flowers on the ladder add vertical color to the garden.
I will plant all of the flowers in the garden next week and choose new flowers for the ladder.
I even found time to organize La Petite Maison
We don't use this area behind Steve's studio much
but the nights will soon be warm enough for us to sit by the fire pit.
Steve and I both enjoy reading (and just maybe snoozing) outside this time of year.
Fortunately, since Lulu likes to sunbathe on the chaise,
we have a second chaise for Steve and me to fight over.
The planter in front is bursting with color
and there are a few flowers I am watching closely.
I swear that our garden is planted by the birds and I'm keeping my eye on this fuzzy little bud.
Two more have developed since I took this photo and I am curious to see what the flowers will look like.
By the time we get home on Monday, I expect the hibiscus to be in full bloom
I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to gardening, but I love our funky little cottage garden.
