Spring Makeover

The sun finally came out to stay! One of my favorite things is dining outside on our deck. But after the long, cold winter and rainy spring the deck is looking pretty drab. More specifically, the kitchen window box was in need of a serious makeover. I just love looking at "Before & After" project photos! They are so rewarding when you need a little fix of instant gratification.


The tulips and hyacinths that bloomed so beautifully, just in time for Easter, had to go. Though I did save them to replant for next year.  


Pink geraniums—I can even see them indoors! I chose geraniums because they've survived my level of care in the past—with great success. The other little lovelies I can't even identify because I do not have even a light green thumb. Add some fresh tomato-basil bruschetta and sangria and I'm ready for dinner alfresco! (I may have to shoot a "Way After" picture sometime in July. Though it will probably look very similar to the "Before.")
