Then and now

There is 3 1/2 weeks difference in these pictures.

It is truly amazing how fast petunias grow.

I spent a lot of time making my huge planter and painting it with the metallic paints only to realize a few weeks later the pot does not even show anymore lol.

A good rule of thumb when it comes to finding the perfect place for your petunias is the lighter colors need filtered sun rather than full sun and brighter or darker colors can handle the sun better.

If you can find the perfect spot for your petunias they will really put on a show with lots of blooms every day to brighten up your yard.

For the love of nature

You realize as you get older things are harder to do, you tire out easier and need more breaks. Honestly, that is okay because at least you are able to to do something you truly enjoy.

Listening to the birds sing early in the mornings is one of my favorite things to do.

I was talking to my mother n law and she told me she loves that too and she sits outside early in the morning waiting on her ride to mass.

The sun on your skin a fresh breeze in the air & being surrounded by nature is such a beautiful feeling.

Nature has a way of making you feel alive.

Vintage Window

Vintage Windows are amazing I love the look of them and there are so many projects you can do with them.

I saw this project done on Pinterest many years ago and I saved it to one of my boards knowing that one day I would use this idea.

This project is so simple just hang an old window frame in a tree using some rope or chain then add a hook in the center of the frame up top and add your hanging basket of flowers.

I am a visual interest person I like to take areas of our yard that are sort of bland looking and wake them up.

This area gets some afternoon sun but it is filtered from the tree. I think the Vinca hanging basket and the window frame complement each other quite well.

Adding this small splash of color really made a big difference.
