Hanging Baskets

Happy Almost Friday! Sure is gloomy here today and rained all day yesterday! So gloomy that I wish it would just go ahead a rain already!
I ‘m feeling okay, I went to the doctors Monday and I have good ole Bronchitis, so I’m on some meds to hopefully clear things up and get better, we leave for Cabo, Mexico on the 26th, our anniversary and I want to be better so I’m taking care of myself. The doctor said to rest, yeah right!
So this morning I went around and took some pictures of the hanging baskets we bought last Saturday, they are huge and were only $13.99 a piece…so thrifty I think when you compare them to ones I’ve seen for $22.99. I grabbed as many as I could!
Yes, that’s me in my work outfit! Love this one, I was going to get a Boston fern like last year but thought I’d try something different since they were so inexpensive.012

Here are my window boxes, I thought I’d try some different plants in here too, I think it will look good once they all fill in a little.
I think this is the last year for the window boxes they are getting tired looking, I can’t   complain though I got them a few years ago from a yardsale both for $2.00 so I’ve got my moneys worth out of them and more! They were white then I painted them barn red now they are khaki like the garage door!
This basket is at the end of the driveway and that’s my plum tree that we planted last year, I was so glad that it took over the winter, and it did have little pink blossoms on it last month. The tree that was there was hit by lightning and we have sure missed it.
The Rhododendron is a lot fuller since the last I showed it and as you can see we still need to weed out and get some new mulch.
We are in the back of my house now…gorgeous isn’t it? I n the back you can see one of the two Boston ferns I bought, I always hang them there because they do so well and always make it look cooler on hot days for some reason!
LOVE! You can see the pressure washer which Stush used last Sunday on the back of the house!
Now can you say Climates? lol Look at it, I just wish it would stay this way thur summer but it hasn’t yet just blooms in the spring. My mom would be so proud! The white stuff that looks like snow on the ground is from a tree that grows way to the right, it gets all over everything.
Red Geraniums, wouldn’t be summer without them around!
Here are some that I still have to plant, I fell in love with them and have never planted them before.
Earlier this morning I went to my oldest, Sydney, grandaughter’s spring concert, this is her last year in elementary… next year she is in 5th grade which means Middle School, just can’t believe it! She is right next to the girl with her hand by her mouth.
I got a shot of her when she came down off the stage.
I’m so happy to be back and joining these parties:
I’ve missed you all and so glad to be feeling better, it gave me a chance to think about what I want to do with my home so I’ve been writing it down and can’t wait to start on some projects that I so want to do! Thanks so much for your sweet comments and for stopping by…means a lot to me!
