Gardening always feeds my spirit. There is something very healing about digging in the dirt, caring for plants and creating a nice environment using nature. 

This year I decided to go with purple, blue and white plants, the purple in honor of Prince. Here is what I did today:


Planted these beauties that remind me of fireworks. My pot still needs something surrounding it. I’ll add that to both pots soon.


With my dog Marley, my grass takes a beating. I put down lots of grass seed with hopes of having a nice, plush green lawn soon. 


On my porch, I planted some purple and white in my gray pots.


I picked up this pot on sale at Lowes during the winter. It goes perfectly with my purple theme for this season. 


Pardon the weeds. I will deal with those the next time I do yard work in the next two weeks. I was so excited to see my Hosta’s that I planted last year coming back! I have to have special gloves because some of the weeds have prickly leaves that pierce skin. 

I still have to pick up my hanging baskets for the porch. I also want to add a tree or two to my porch. I may also plant some more flowers in pots this year. It all depends on what I see when I go to my favorite plant nursery. 

I also updated my fireplace with cute summer pieces:


I still had Easter decorations in the fireplace. I may get one of my favorite pictures blown up to frame inside of the fireplace. I’m thinking a yellow frame would be perfect. 

I also picked up this cute “S” book from Michaels for my bookshelf. 


There is a possibility for rain 3 days this week, which would be great for my grass & new plants. 

I also had an amazing bath using my Lush Bath products. I’ll share more about that later! 

I truly enjoy planting seeds! If you’re celebrating Mother’s Day, I hope it’s been a relaxing and enjoyable day for you!
