No crazy earth shattering news . . . just white flowers for the backyard!
We started out with a tall black planter with some pretty petunias in it. We placed it just outside the garage door! I spent all of last year looking for a tall black planter at a decent price, I finally found one at Homesense for $40.
I love petunias, but the one thing I don't love about them in all the dead heading that goes along with them! It's easier if they're easily within reach. I once had a petunia hanging baskets and spent many hours that summer with my arms above my head trying to dead head the darn thing. Here I am dead heading away . . .
And here's where we are on phase two.
-Plant a shade tree at the back of the yard.
-Change out boring metal garage door, with a pretty wood and glass one.
-Add an outdoor sofa, maybe a sectional.
In phase 3 we plan on adding a small, very low deck so that we have somewhere to host a little dinner outside! But that's at least a year away . . . maybe more!
I hope you're lov'in the white as much as we are!!!
