Flowers in the Pineapple Patch

I have been wanting to add a pineapple patch at this house since the one at the other house is doing so well. Here is the finished pineapple patch and I'll tell you what we did.

My Little Herb Garden

As the weather warms up, many of us are thinking about planting flowers or vegetables. Are you planting?  I don't plant many vegetables except for tomatoes, but I do like my herbs.

Do you like fresh herbs? I love being able to go outside and get fresh herbs to cook with.

Garden by the Barn

I have been trying to get my gardens ready for summer. I always seem to be adding mulch when the weather is hot. We are unseasonably warm here today - 95. Quite hot for April. I got the mulch in a few weeks ago, before I got sick and I didn't get to finished decorating. So today, while my husband is in Italy, I decided to finish them.

Adding the holidays to wire baskets

In many parts of the country, the hanging baskets have been put away. However, here in Florida, mine stay up all year. Usually this time of year, I don't have potted plants in my baskets since the selection is minimal with holiday flowers in demand. So what to do with those wire baskets?

Decorate them of course.  Many of you have pine trees where you can get fresh pine, but here not so much or at least not the good kind. I went to Home Depot and they had two carts filled with pine branches that they trimmed off the trees and said I could have all I wanted. Yeah!! 

Free pine branches are added to wire hanging baskets.

Hobby Lobby Copy

Last month when I was in Hobby Lobby they had some of their summer Decor on sale.  I spotted this watering can. I loved the chevron pattern and the blue color. I can't remember how much it was, I think around $20.

As I was looking at it, I remembered that I had purchased a watering can a while back. Maybe I could make it over.

Recycled Chair as Flower Pot

I have this thing for chairs, well lots of things actually, but really chairs. I guess I feel the need to rescue them sometimes. This was the case with the well worn, or as my husband says, "garbage" chairs. I was taking the dogs for a ride on the golf cart, their favorite thing to do, and spotted these chairs on top of a pile of other junk and tree trimmings.

They weren't in bad shape except for the fact that the seat was gone. Does that count?
