Any one else ready for Spring?

Spring seems so far away. I was looking back through some photos and thought I would share some "soon to be Spring is in the air". This was the first place my husband and I ever owned. It was a townhouse we built and lived in for two years prior to moving just shy of 10 minutes further down the road into our house that we live in now. Talk about an annoying move. The fact we had to pack everything up and barely go a few miles.

I am convinced it was the little touches we did outside and inside that made our townhouse sale. Can you believe there are still ones on the market in the same townhouse division that were for sale when we had ours for sale!? We added a silver kick plate to our door. We landscaped what little bit of front yard we had by edging out an L Shape design that hugged the sidewalk leading up to our door. We added some perennial purple flowers to the front, 2 different types of variegated bushes (which keep their color year around), threw in a few flowers, mulch, and landscape rocks here and there. On the other side of the garage we had a Hydrangea bush, however you cannot see it in this picture.

We worked with what little space we had (as you can see our neighbors driveway was right next door! Bit more curb appeal did the trick. I loved my little flower garden.

This was our back deck. We took two Shepherd hooks and buzzed them shorter and screwed them into each side of the deck. We hung grapevine flower baskets off the hooks. Purple petunias are excellent to plant in the hot South. We also took two deck baskets and hung those lower over the inside part of the deck with the same flower. We have planned well that both of our homes we have owned back up to deep woods. I love being able to look out and see tons of trees out of our windows.
