Spring has sprung and I played in the dirt!

Standard

Last weekend I was inspired by the in-laws and my husband to finally buck up and start gardening! I’ve been saying I would garden for about a year now. It didn’t get very far last year.

This year I started with a couple of hanging baskets in May.

These have now bloomed and stayed very bright! The pink one is probably in the sun a but too much and may have dried out in some areas. I actually picked up these hanging baskets at costco! They were pretty cheap!

Anyways, so last weekend we made a stop at Home Depot and picked up some annuals and 3 herbs. Oh and some soil too.

So here’s the before we planted the flowers… With a few existing old rose bushes from my grandmas roses at the front of the house…

And the three types of herbs I bought: basil, apple mint, and chocolate mint.
