I love Spring. I hate the allergies (OH MY WORD THE ALLERGIES!) and the crazy weather, but I love pretty much everything else. Warm days and cool evenings are my jam. Actually... they're a close second.... cool days and cold nights are my real jam :) hahaha
One of my favorite parts of Spring is getting outside in the yard. Every Spring I have huge plans to plant all the things and have a gorgeous garden by summer. The problem is that typically by June my garden has succumbed to the Texas heat - and there are only so many sage plants one can plant :)
Let's pause for a moment and admire the impatients that I used to plant all the way around the garden in our front yard. Yes, that's Luke :)
And while I was looking through pictures I came across one of my absolute FAVORITE ones from that same summer. I seriously feel like this was yesterday!
Anyway, this year we didn't do ANYTHING out back because we fully expected to start construction on our house in June. Since then plans have changed, but I did have the urge to get my garden on and so when I came across this super cute set of pots I snatched it up and got my hands dirty.
My set of pots is sold out, but they now have this fantastic set of SIX!
I grabbed a few small herbs that I use in cooking...
I LOVE aged terra cotta!!! I have plans to age some of mine over the summer... it's a long process though so these were a quick fix.
The pots aren't huge, so the dirt that came with the plants was plenty.
I wrote on the labels with Sharpie and so far it's held up!
Easy peasy!!! I had these in my kitchen window, but have since moved them out to my front porc. and I LOVE how they turned out! I'm hoping I'll be able to pull them inside this Fall and keep them all alive ;)
Hope you liked my little mini garden - for all of y'all with "black thumbs" this would be an easy project to do with your kids :) You could even plant seeds (beans or something else easy) and label them with your kids names and see which one grows the fastest/biggest. It would also be cute with different flowers. Happy Gardening, Friends!!!
