So it's spring & things look great at my house.  You can see the remnants of Jade's golf course mowing.  The grass is growing so fast right now he can't keep up with it!

My porch landscaping is starting to look great & I've finally gotten to plant my pots.  I'm hoping that by our show date for Ethel Edith, May 8th, that everything is filled in and looking great!  The show will be at my house on the concrete pad & in the lawn.

I just love how sedums are so round when they first start growing.  The roses & lavender will get huge soon!  I hate our corner boxwood - it will be replaced shortly!  It keeps having pieces of it die on me.

Even Duke and Sylvia are enjoying the spring.

I found some fun pillows at Kohl's to cheer up my porch swing.

A big fern, cute door mat, and giant bugs from Hobby Lobby complete the entrance.

My Mom told me to paint my back porch patio furniture.  It was green, but I love it hot pink!

I'm anxious for all my plants back here to get big - it's always so cozy on this porch.

My perennials are really growing in fast.  Except two I some how sprayed with Round Up - how I love that stuff!  I have to replacements to go back in though.  I can't wait to put out some fresh mulch!  We usually get a semi load for Mom & Dads and my house.

My ostrich ferns are shooting out babies everywhere!

My walkout basement is getting better.  I planted all my galvanized tubs & can't wait to see them get big and full.  I'm really going to have to work on watering this year!

This is the ugly side of the walkout.  For now the kids still like the riding toys so they like to get them out and ride down here.  I may move these up to the garage soon & keep this more of an adult area.

I found some giraffe pillows on clearance at walmart - love them!

Jade built the top for our bar.  It's looking great!  I have two big lemon grasses on order for the tall galvanized tubs.  They are meant to repel mosquitoes so we'll see how that works.  I'd like to find a few chicken feeders to fill with more plants for the bar. 

This weekend we will be landscaping like mad!  We have two large 15' x 4' beds to plant along these wing walls in addition to mulching all the beds & trees!  Wish us luck - we want a pretty yard for our show next weekend!  Thank the lord Abbie is a chiropractor - I think she'll be adjusting me after the mulching!
