Jason and I partook in that grand tradition of over-spending in celebration of the season. Yes, we bought our plants for the summer 🙂 Actually, this year was not so bad. Thanks to Menards’ rebate program, Jason’s new deck heater made this a pretty inexpensive planting season.
Saturday evening, despite being thoroughly exhausted from working our family rummage sale all day, we headed out to buy our flowers for the summer. I also picked up herbs and tomatoes that I’m hoping are more successful this year than they have been the past few seasons.
First up Sunday was putting the finishing touches on our deck set-up for the summer. There are still a couple things left to do, including hanging Jason’s “chandelier” (…which I don’t believe I ever highlighted on here – I must fix that soon 🙂 ).
After getting more deck stuff out, I spent my time playing in the dirt. In this mix this year…
The rest of our yard is also coming to life.
I can’t wait for the weather to stabilize so we can enjoy our backyard. We’re still going back and forth between 80 degrees and 50 degrees. Ah, Wisconsin 😐
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb are anxiously waiting, too.
