APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS

Spring is here!  Yes, I know its still raining like crazy here in Seattle, but we've had a few days of beautiful sun, and I'm ready to see those flowers!
.
This year I'm determined to spend some time making my balcony a secret little retreat.  I live below the stairs, which I love.  During the spring and summer there is a lilac bush right in front of my balcony rail and it blooms into a lush bright green and purple smell good flowers.  Between the stairs and my lilac bush, my porch becomes almost completely private.  My own private little oasis.  I'm currently on the hunt for a shabby potting bench.  I'm really hoping to have some fun this spring.

I've been loving these terrarium pieces.  I made 15 of these beauties for my wedding, and now I just want them all over my house.



I love this swing!  I have to make one these!

I also love this idea of planting in glass containers.  This one is beautiful with this pretty rustic rope.
Pretty Pretty.


Do any of you have spring gardening plans?

Cheers!
