I was able to roll the strawberry jar into a place that had been reserved for it. I put it up on concrete circles...so the bottom would be protected. It really wasn't hard to do this way. This is going to stay here and not go on the deck. That way no one will have to lift the heavy thing and take it to and from the deck. Audra came home from school about now. I said, "Doesn't everything look fresh and shiny?" She said, "I think one of those shiny hens is smiling at me."
We put the purple chair back in it's place of honor, between two rosebushes. The concrete shell was freshened too. Dried dead hens were removed and new ones put in their places. Fresh soil was sprinkled over the top and we put it in place.
The blue bowl like planter is doing well. The sedums are waking up and thinking about growing. I didn't have to put soil in this one, because I just planted it late last summer.
The fish box that I scavenged from my daughter was tidied up. A new sedum was dug out of the ground next to the box and placed in the middle for color. I'm going to look for something taller and colorful to add to this planter.
In the last picture you can see some of the little garden. Before long the Mum plant in the foreground will be bigger, the purple Sage will grow tall and blossom it's purple blossoms, the rose bushes will be in bloom, the Mandevilla will begin it's climb to the porch rail with bright pink blooms...I can hardly wait.
