I've been planting and transplanting and coddling plants for about three weeks now. I am patiently awaiting their leaves and blooms in hopes that my care has paid off. In the meantime, I'm bringing color to my backyard and garden by my own accord.
I made this vibrant garden tote in the dead of winter after finding this fabric on sale at The Needle Shop
. It has been hanging on a doorknob all winter and now it is out in the yard in full affect. After three weeks of use I have yet to yell, "where the hell did I put my pruner
?" to no one in particular. Everything in one place. It can hold all my tools plus whatever it is I am planting. It is not, however, this clean anymore nor will it ever be I assume.
I hung these lovely solar powered garden lanterns
yesterday. My friend Eva and I took a weekday trip to Ikea in March and I found these. They were $10 each. Not bad, especially since I've had good luck Ikea solar lights. They work, and I've had one string
for 4 years now and it still faithfully lights up. I don't know why I thought any different with these lanterns, but last night when I looked out my window at the garage I didn't expect to see these lit up, but they were, in fact, glowing in the moonlight (streetlight). Immediately a smile came to my face - they made me so happy (I get it now, Mom).
I should put up a picture, but I know they won't look as good via picture, so I will selfishly keep the image in my mind and invite you over for a BBQ or something fun like that so you can see them for yourself.
...more summer colors to come...
