The Simply Luxurious Life®: Spring Spruce Up!  

May 6, 2010

Spring Spruce Up!

This upcoming weekend is one that I look forward to every year.  Now depending upon the weather, it may fall earlier or later during spring, but the weekend I am referring to involves the initial start to the energizing of my front porch.  By way of annual-filled containers and ceramic pots, hanging baskets, the building of my herb garden and adding a few new perennials here and there, this weekend always seems to lift my spirits. 

On my list this weekend:

*An iron trellis for my three-year-old climbing rose from Heirloom Roses

*A few more hostas – one of my favorite perennials that I can’t seem to get enough of – so lush and full.

*Combinations of annuals for my ceramic pots – maybe some creeping jenny, sweet potato vines, coleus, begonias or petunias.

*I can’t forget to pick up some of my favorite herbs – basil and Italian parsley.

Phew!  I have a feeling that will keep me busy for my Saturday.  After all of that work, I have a feeling I’ll be reaching for a cozy seat on the porch with my loyal companions, a fresh, new magazine and a sweet treat. 

Here’s hoping all goes well!
