For me nothing helps fend off the winter blues or helps cure spring fever quicker than a beautiful spring flower, so this 5 minute makeover was just what the Doctor ordered. A wave of the magic wand and a slight detour at the grocery store was all that was needed to bring new life into my tired winter containers. I cut back the faded brown grass that served as a winter backdrop and switched out the kale for senetti peraallis a great spring plant that will re-bloom all summer in my area (until temperature consistently reaches 85 elsewhere) and some tulips in bloom. The tulips will only last a few weeks but make a great Easter decoration and when they are spent it will give me an excuse to refresh the look for summer.
The final touch was a few Easter decorations I took out of storage, to help keep the Easter eggs in place fill them with soil or small rocks. Now each time I come home I remember spring is right around the corner and I have the added bonus of getting to find an Easter egg everyday!
Wishing you a Happy Spring –
