Let's take a little break from Easter and check out the new additions to my cottage.
Those additions are many new flowers. And they are so beautiful, I might add. I had many a helper to drive them down on the golfcart, but they kind of disappeared when it came time to plant.
I am sort of in love with these beauties.
SO, I got them in pink and red.
And because my Poppa used to plant zinnias in his yard every year, and because he loved me enough to plant a second crop in June one year just so I would have a bunch of beautiful zinnias in my wedding in September.
And guess what... this past week, my husband had a totally awesome deck added onto the back of my cottage. It is just perfect. It has an awesome view, steps coming down both sides of the deck into my garden, and super bonus... a canopy formed by a huge oak tree right over the top of my deck.
Why is it that flowers look so much better in the flats at the nursery and even when you first put them in the ground, than when you go back to check on them a week later!?
I mean, seriously... these are gorgeous. The red ones are about 4" across.
I did get my porch pots planted. And I am pretty happy with how that is looking now.
And if you are my instagram buddy (melaniemomom), you saw this one. I love the filters on instagram. Wish I had lots of time and all kinds of knowledge of Photoshop.
But I also wish I was skinny, rich, and organized!
