Planting Pretty Things

It's been a gorgeous weekend here in Minneapolis so I was able to start working on some of my outdoor projects/ideas!  Nothing huge yet, just got some pretty flowers & greenery to plant around our deck and in a few planters...
Did you catch Sadie's camouflage action? She getting really good at those "Where's Waldo" moments! 

The little green touches are already making it feel a bit cozier!  I'm just hoping I can help make them grow faster, especially the mandevilla vine, we'll see!  I think my gardening skills are getting better at least considering I used to just kill everything :)  If you have any tips for the mandevilla vine growth let me know!

Did you do any gardening this weekend? 
What did you plant? 


  1. We planted tomato, bell pepper, strawberries, oregano, petunias, geraniums, and sweet potato vine this past weekend. No blog post yet but I took pictures! Dogs love to help garden don't they?! Love your welcome sign!

  2. I grow mandivilla every year! Give it tons of sun, not too much water and smoothing to climb!

  3. I grow Mandevilla every year! Give it tons of sun, not too much to drink and something to climb!

    1. Thanks for the tip! I think I've been watering it too much, so I'll lay off a bit :)


I love to hear from you! What's on your mind?
