No, not the Kentucky Derby Day horses, but the annual Spring Chores.
Tuesday it was so cold and rainy, I thought we were back in Winter.
Today, the sun was out and we we made it to 60!
Still too cold to plant annuals here, I bought a few pots, but I can bring them in or cover them at night.
I started doing the deck and porch with the Olympic Deck wash. We do it every year, no more power washing for us, it ruins the wood. The tables and chairs won’t come out till I am done, less to move!
I have started to paint all the white wicker. I will have to cover it up until the pollen has fallen, which won’t be for a few weeks. Our trees don’t have their leaves yet.
I bought 2 of these planters at Aldi. They only had brown, so I sprayed them white. I should have stock in Krylon, I use that to paint all the porch wicker .
I go through a lot of it! BTW, Walmart has the best price on it.
Last year I donated some of my wicker chairs to a charity yard sale. I have been trying to replace them, and it isn’t easy. I don’t want the plastic kind and I have only been able to find the real deal at antique stores. I got this one last week. I have to clean and paint it.
I got a pot of this Bridal Veil. I rip pieces from it and plant it in my pots. It gives a nice airy look to them. It gets a little white flower.
Again, I have to be careful as we can still get a frost.
I can’t wait for the pollen invasion to be over so I can do everything.
I am more anxious this year after the terrible winter we had. I lost several azaleas, 2 rose bushes, clematis and a crepe myrtle. Lots of the lavender didn’t come back, I will be making a few trips to the nursery!
It will be a few more weeks till “porch sitting time”, and I am looking forward to it!
Don’t forget the wedding china challenge on May 14th. It doesn’t have to be YOUR wedding china, can be something passed on to you, or any formal china. Maybe you bought it for yourself a few years ago!
This is mine, Noritake Heather, but I didn’t get it till a few years after I was married. I will save that story for the challenge. It’s a nail biter, lol!
Busy week ahead, gson’s First Communion next Sat. That means there will be a lot of baking of the guests take homes and centerpieces being done this week. Will I work in a table? Maybe!
Enjoy your Sunday!
