I bought this fun summer sign last weekend, and since hanging it in my apartment, I've been chomping at the bit to get my flowers planted! I have a small deck, but each summer I plant a couple flower pots and as much basil as I can fit in a pot. I hated planting, mowing, and watering when I was growing up, and I vowed I'd have a cemented yard. However, as my mom promised, I've caught the bug, and I love a little life around in the summer.
I had an exciting Saturday night of buying flowers, and after organizing my garage in the afternoon, it was ready to plant flowers. Even though I have limited outdoor space, I love walking through the garden center and dreaming of a big, summery back-yard :) Someday.
I always think plants look better after a week of sun, water, and the chance to take root really well. Once my geraniums bloom a little more, I love to stick American flags in the sides of the pot as July comes around. I also use basil almost daily in the summer, and I never have to buy it. It's so easy to grow! Keep an eye out for fun recipes as it (hopefully) takes off! Happy spring!
