Two posts in one day? Crazy, I know. This one is mostly for my husband who is out of town at a convention - I just wanted to show off the new plants that have shown up in his absence. My mom came down yesterday and helped me (or really truth be told, I helped her) put in 19 hostas in the beds out front. Yes, NINETEEN! And on the hottest day of the year so far, smart I know.
And then today we took Gram to Pike's and bought some ferns and other plants to dress up the front porch. The big pots came from IKEA, a steal at 5.99 each and the red maples in them are also from my mom. We added several different kinds of ferns and sweet potato plants.
I can honestly say I love how these turned out! I can also assure you that the green thumb that runs so rampant in our family completely skipped me so I am praying that I can keep these gorgeous plants alive. Seriously.
Oh well, I guess I need to make an effort to enjoy them TODAY! Which I did :-) Now for chairs...stay tuned.
