It is May in New England but we have been so cold that, most of us, are afraid to plant our flowers. Dante deemed that this weekend will be "the" weekend. Now I get to go shopping.
In the past I have always had a ton of flower pots but that is not the case this year. Of course in the past, we had so many flowers to take care of I was not sure if after moving if I would ever want to plant flowers again. But I do!
One of my favorite planters was a crock that had our family name and address on it. Of course, because that address is no longer valid and I didn't have a desire to bring it at the time, it was left behind. It was pretty cool because it was like those house address plaques and, an awesome planter at the same time.
I have big plans for a small patio garden as well as a few plants in the ground. I hope our neighbors don't mind us taking up a little of their outside space. In the two and a half years we have lived here I have never seen them use their deck for more than smoking a cigarette.
