Planted,potted, weeded...more to follow.

Luckily on this first weekend without soccer (also a holiday so I get one extra day) the weather is cooperating. I was up bright and early this morning so I could do a few errands before the holiday traffic started. I pulled into the garden center at 8:00am! Came home, unloaded, had a cup of coffee then headed out to another store(very cute..they have tons of clay pots, birdhouses/food, koi fish &pond accessories) to pick up fish food and also purchased a pot. Stopped at another place and grabbed a bag of potting soil, and then a roadside stand for a few perennials to add to my front flower bed.

Then I began weeding, planting and potting. Nothing has been done all spring except rake up leaves. Here's a look at my potted containers....

The bargain of the day was that Gardenia Tree for only $10.00. Of course I then had to buy a pot at the other store for it :wink: So there are the 8 containers I planted for around the deck and patio. I just have to do the 2 giant pots out by the pool. Also if you can see Fritz is in the background helping. We weeded down the walkway to the gate and in front of the picket fence is another bed of flowers that I added more perennials and weeded.

Speaking of the pool. The kids made it in for the first time this afternoon. A nice treat after doing yardwork.

Still need to get some journaling on my last layout for the month and I have another idea I'd like to work on this weekend. Then I have to get the picture taken of all my projects. I will be still posting crafty stuff here, but we are also changing up the format of the CC blog starting next week. Each week will have a theme and the DT will take turns posting each day. Hope you stop by and check it out.
