Snowball Plant

It’s Garden Season Y’all!

Things are getting GREEN around here

and we could not be more happy about it! 🙂

Our showy snowball bush is already pushing out flowers!

We had 2 beautiful days of weekend weather and used every moment

to make the most of the arrival of Spring!

I started by building our 4 garden boxes.

(2) 3x8ft boxes

(2) 2x4ft boxes

To build them we used 6ft cedar fence pickets.

Below are the 2 finished 3×8 ft boxes.

We plan to use the 2x4ft  boxes for tomatoes.

Once all the dirt we’ve been piling up from other projects gets leveled,

we will put the 8ft boxes to the left of the tomatoes and place a trellis between them.

Take a look at this GORGEOUS GRASS!!!

It’s so green and lovely! 🙂

We also planted our first bulbs! About 30 Gladiolus flower bulbs.

I cannot wait to see them popping out of the ground!

They are going to be such a beautiful burst of color this summer.

While the mister was digging some holes [Pergola: Part 1]

I managed to also get the front, side, and back lawn fertilized and over-seeded.

Things are about to get much more GREEN around here!


I'm Rose. Nice to meet you! :) I'm a Southern transplant from the Northeast. I have two fur baby pups, Pippa and Watson, and the best partner a girl could ever ask for, Paul. I'm a believer of making the most of every moment. As much as I might try to slow down, busy seems to me my word. I'm a busy person, with a busy mind, and a ever growing list of things to do, places to go, books to read, recipes to make, and things to learn! I started this blog in the winter of 2013 as a way to allow family and friends {800+ miles away} to be a part of our lives. It's also served as a creative outlet for me to share projects, photos, travel, passions, thoughts, and a couple recipes. Being a first time home owner, we've been on a quest to transform our cookie cutter house into a home. ❤ I hope you enjoy this creative space.
