Our weather has been spectacular!
We have enjoyed these 80+ degree days
and can't spend enough time outside.
Today I finally finished up
some planting on the screen porch.
I bought some herbs for pots
when we were out on Sunday
at the garden center.
I don't have the greenest thumb
in the world
but I can usually grow
some Basil, Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme.
I ordered a set of these herb boxes
from Decor Steals
when they were last offered.
I thought they were so cute!
Since I wanted to use them outside
I waterproofed them first
with Thompson's WaterSeal.
I just slapped on a coat
and waited for them to dry.
Some people were napping
during the whole process.
OK, they are not going in like this
but I couldn't resist
putting them in for a sneak peek!
I planted the herbs in terracotta pots
in different sizes and set them in the boxes.
The tiny one up top
was too itty bitty for a pot
so I am debating what to do there.
I hung them up for now with just a nail.
I am waiting for Mr. Beaux
to come home and hang them up
with something more sturdy.
I just get impatient, can you tell?
See my little bird's nest?
I found it abandoned in my front bushes.
The birds have taken up a new residence
in the opposite tree.
She is sitting on her nest right now,
waiting for her little babies to hatch.
The screen porch
still has a little clean up to be done.
But then again,
so does just about every room
in my house right now!!!
And, while we are on the subject of planting...
This Burr Oak was planted
in the backyard today!
It will grow up big and strong
and have a nice canopy
to shield us from the new construction!
Grow little tree, grow!
Until Next Time,
