Mini Weekend Recap

We had a “yard weekend”. No lie, we spent practically all day Saturday and Sunday in our back yard… We had totally let it go over the Summer due to the heat and the brick we were getting installed. Keeping up with the flowers just seemed like an impossible and semi ridiculous task, especially since it was essentially a construction zone for months! Anyway, now that the hardscaping is complete (we still have sod and larger shrubs to install) it was time we got our flower beds in order, because…it. was. BAD. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING was crispy.

We spent all day Saturday just removing dead plants, pulling weeds, trimming topiaries, and cleaning off pots. And on Sunday we trimmed trees, washed off our decks, replaced our window box, and planted a few key pots. We still have so much more planting to do, but we’ve decided to just take it a little bit at a time! Plus now that the weather is so much better (it’s going to dip into the high 60’s in the mornings this week – If you live in Florida, you know!), I really only want to be in our back yard anyway!

It was definitely a work on the house kind of weekend, but truly those are my favorite kind.

I hope you had an equally wonderful and productive weekend!

P.S. I’m guest posting over on Carly’s blog, so you will have to hop on over and check it out! I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make a “fancy” flower arrangement at home.
