Spring has sprung - Finally!!!

School is done for the day as well as most of the household chores.

It's a beautiful warm sunny day outside and my windows are open. My husband and I went to Lowe's yesterday and looked at the flowers and herbs. I really would like to plant an herb garden this year. I have a perfect place under a tree in the backyard.
I want to plant rosemary, basil, parsley, mint, cilantro, and thyme.

I also want to put window boxes out this year in the front. I figured I'll need 5. We found some for $7.00 each. Still trying to figure out what I want to put in them. I want some purplish/blue flowers, white dainty flowers, some trailing ivy and probably red petunias or another reddish flower. Our house is grey, so I think this would look great next to it.

We are still wanting to do either a raised bed garden or a container garden. At first, I was leaning more toward the raised beds, but now thinking more that we will do a container garden.

Has anyone used one of those upside down hanging tomato things? My husband is interested in giving it a try...but they are about $19.00 each and I'm not sure if I want to spend the money one one....still deciding.

My husband got his new toy out this morning (his riding lawn mower) and mowed the grass. I absolutely LOVE the smell of grass that has just been cut.

Well, the outdoors is calling. Need to go and clean up all the leaves on the back patio.
