Martin and I got back on Monday from a quick trip to Northern California. We attended Martin's Uncle's funeral. More on our trip to come.
For now, pictures of a project we started the day before we left. We thought that spring was finally here and so it was time to create our entryway.
I put Henry to work drilling holes in my $4.00 plastic pots I got at Target.
I decided to keep the red berries and the little green wreath.
This little area needs some work. I would love to plant a hydrangea bush right where the fountain is. The pansies were part of a fundraiser from the middle school choir. They now need to go. And that water pipe. Not sure what we're going to do with that, but it is bugging me.
I bought these when I was in Canton and they were supposed to go into the pots the minute I got home from California.
Ha ha. We got stuck in California an extra day. We didn't get back until Monday night. Bumped from our flight, but nicely compensated. I worried that the plants would shrivel from the heat by the time we got home, but Old Man Winter had a surprise for us when we got back. It was thunderstorming and 35 degrees. Today was the first day we were able to really get outside. I went walking in the morning, but froze my bottom off. It got up to 50 degrees this afternoon, but with a chill.
Tomorrow, I plant.
