And here's what it looks like now:
After painting, David and I took a trip to Market Basket and picked up some flowers to re-do this space:
I know, it's a sight for sore eyes, but I think I can work my magic! Here's some of the flowers I chose for the area:After Market Basket we headed to Ace to pick up new bricks to outline the area and then went to Rural King to look at more flowers. Turns out RK didn't have any, but we found a new flower place across the street that we never knew of--sweet! They were having a 1/2 off sale on their annuals and I picked up two big pots to go on our back patio/shed. Here's a pic of them potted all pretty! They are huge--and I only paid $12 for the both of them! : )
I also cleaned up the patio after some birds had decided to make a nest in our shed and poo all over the place. I power-washed it down and cleaned the cushions and furniture and we should be good to go to enjoy the space for the rest of the summer! I'll probably stop back by that flower place to get some more annuals for the baskets on the wall! And then finally, I decided to move all the old pavers from the area next to the house and clear out the weeds to make room for the new pavers and flowers that will be arranged tomorrow. Here's what the space looks like now, just waiting for the a.m. and me! Should be an interesting challenge--I'll blog all about my progress tomorrow night!Oh, and one more thing, I have to brag on my hanging basket plant that I picked up on the way home from our family reunion last weekend! It was only $5--and it's gorgeous! I hope it makes it through the summer and my lack of a green thumb!
