If you've read my blog for a while, you know I'm one those cursed people with the dreaded
BLACK THUMB (daaan daaaan daaan!!!)
Yup, the opposite of those people with the GREEN THUMB - I 'Kill' plants. Not on purpose mind you, they just 'don't like me'! ;-)
So luckily, I married a man who has better thumbs that I have! And so he's been busy planting up and pretty-fying our back patio with pots and plants.
You already saw what we did with our pergola...
But we also added these to the opposite deck...
|Don't mind the weeds, just look at the planters ;-)|
We chose boxwoods and got the planters from Sam's Club ($12.99 each which I think is a bargain).
|I don't know why we only added these recently, I love them here.|
|He also repotted this Adenium plant - a gift from a friend|
We also had this problem area beside the pool house...
|Overgrown weeds BLAH!|
As you can see, we plan to remove the weeds and plant these 3 flowering shrubs there too, we just have to have the time to do it. ;-)
On another note, this past weekend, we dropped of my oldest son in Chicago for a 3 week camp, the longest time he'll be away from home.
|In his dorm room|
So please excuse me for my sporadic posts since other than taking frequent long drives we're also gearing up for my other son's Summer Camp play the weekend after the 4th!!!
I hope you all have a wonderful and fun
4th of July everyone!
Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...
