Backyard Blah to Backyard Cool (or should I say Hot)!
Hi All! It’s summer time! Woot Woot! Can you tell I’m just a little excited? I love summer and hanging out in our backyard. I really enjoy sitting out in the warm sunshine, reading a book, hanging out with friends, or simply relaxing with my husband after a long day with a favorite beverage in hand. Now, for the most part, our backyard is done. We landscaped right away because who wants muddy paw prints in their new house? Not this girl! It was just lacking some color and pizazz! Yup, that’s the word I’m going to use for this – pizazz! We do have a very small backyard so I was hesitant to add too many plants and other greenery. Ok, I’m totally not telling the truth here. I was really hesitant because plants and I don’t get along. They don’t like to stay alive under my watch for some reason or another. But I’m going to give it a try this summer (again). Enter four planters that we bought last summer, four tiki torches that we bought five years ago, and Pinterest (of course)! Now, we have a tiki torch planter project!
