Outside all sort of things are already starting to happen around here and plenty more to come.  So in order to get things primed for a successful growing season we are prepping our gardens from mending soil to fertilizing plants to pruning and trimming unruly growth.

Our ornamental pear trees have bloomed already and we have bulbs that have sprouted.  I am also developing lists of plants, flowers and supplies to provide for the yard’s new season.

More details on updates of the front yard remodel, the veggie garden for the season and more to come soon.  The arbor around the vegetable garden is blooming beautifully at the moment.

It’s a good time to clean out all the containers and planters to be ready for new flowers and plants.  It’s much more enjoyable to plant seasonal containers when pots and planters are clean and organized. And on that note, it’s also a good time to clean gardening tools and sharpen shears, etc.

Inside the home it’s time to fully clean out any remnants from winter, including Valentines day, St. Patrick’s day, etc. decor.  And add Spring touches around the home to bring freshness inside our home.

It’s as easy as adding fresh blooms and plants or more intricate spring decor like nests and birds or even start introducing some Easter decor.

It’s a good time to get organized for Easter if you will be hosting.  I know many of us haven’t hosted anything in a long time or when we have in the last year it has been a bit strange with social distancing, etc.

We will be hosting some family and it will only be a total of seven of us.  I am working on tablescape ideas and menu preparation.  I haven’t brought down the Easter|Spring bin from the attic yet but I have some ideas for new decorations and projects.  Stay tuned.
