Before & After: Our new garden!

Before (Yuck!)



After!

Lighting added to enjoy our new backyard!

As I said here, things have been very busy at the house of Wright getting ready for spring. We have baby birds singing in the backyard and the plants are growing like crazy with the warm weather we've been having.

We decided to take the few extra days I had off from work to make a butterfly garden and to plant a multitude of veggies in giant planters all over our deck. It was such a fun project and turned out much better than we had planned!

We turned on some island calypso music, made piña coladas and gardened all day in the hot sun; It was the perfect ending to our spring break vacay.

What have you been doing lately to prepare for spring? I wanna know!

  10. Hello Rachel Dear,
    The garden looks great and I sure love that handsome, living garden gnome laying in your flower bed. He's getting his daily dose of vitamin D.
    Now you just need a bird bath and a couple of butterfly houses...and a water feature...my hubby and I love working in the yard...I wish I had your vigor.
    Have a wonderful weekend, Angel
