April Showers Bring May Flowers!

Welcome to May! The flowers are in full bloom here, and I couldn't be happier! (Well except maybe if the sneezing would subside.)

But if you follow my blog, you know I love having fresh flowers around, and I try to keep them in the house at all times. I also thoroughly look forward to a time when I will have my own garden and can go right outside and create my own bouquets.

In the meantime, I will just enjoy the beauty that nature provides us with throughout the season.

Adding an outdoor space, like a patio or deck, can add great appeal to your home. It gives you a way to enjoy your garden, a place to chat with friends and get to know your neighbors. It will allow you to be the host of the family barbecue or the garden parties that benchmark our summer season (Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day).

So with Memorial Day right around the corner, and all this gorgeous weather flooding in, let's take advantage and spruce up our outdoor spaces! Get those flowers and veggies planted. Wheel those grills out. Get prepped to soak up the sun all season long. And don't forget to stop and smell the roses!

Happy May!

  1. Getting in fast walks and runs with the dogs is about all of the great outdoors I have time to enjoy these days. Our flowers haven't been impressive thus far... from what I've seen in passing.
