Happy Monday, I hope you had a good weekend! We’ve enjoyed some cooler temperatures the last few days which were perfect for gardening and working around the Potting Shed. I’ve been busy as a bee buzzing from project to project, planting and painting, details and photos to come soon.
Here are a few garden rules I like to follow . . .
Plant the Seeds
Play in the Dirt
Wish for Rain
Watch the Bumble Bees
Talk with Angels
Feed the Birds
Add New Flowers
Sip a Drink
Enjoy the Beauty
I ordered a Garden Rules sign from Antique Farmhouse several weeks ago, perfect for reminding yourself to find the joy in gardening among all your chores!
It’s the ideal width to hang on a shutter by the backdoor of my Potting Shed, so eventually it will hang there or I can move it inside. The backdoor has a large empty panel from the chalkboard side that’s a bit of a challenge to fill and decorate with something blooming. I hung the Garden Rules Sign on a hardware cloth frame with some vintage garden tools and cut some honeysuckle vine that’s running rampant with fragrant blooms in the field next to my shed, to frame the sign.
I’ve been planting containers and pots with annuals and vines and Mother Nature has been oh so helpful with the abundance of rain she’s provided recently. I know it won’t be long before I’ll be lugging the hoses around to keep everything watered.
