Nate and I have been super busy getting our yard in shape for Summer. It seems that we are extra on top of it this year. I think the combination of some excellent weather and a busy Summer ahead was just the push we needed. Things are looking quite charming (and patriotic) around here!
I planted approximately 1000 petunias and all of them are still alive. #miracle Let's hope I don't lose interest in the next few months. The nice thing with petunias is once they are established, they are pretty self sufficient.
The only downfall is that there are (I'm guessing and probably exaggerating) 50 snakes living in that retaining wall. I don't do snakes. They're approximately 8 feel long. Or 6 inches. Close enough. The snakes make watering these petunias an adventure.
Our herb/geranium garden is also growing strong this year. (Directions on this build here!)
The pink gnome doesn't really match but he's still cute. I have, however, been keeping an eye on him after reading this free Craigslist posting.
I'm tempted to go get him because I feel like he's just misunderstood. I think he'd fit in nicely around here.
