I gardened! Well, kind of. It's a small step, but it's something.
I asked Shane for a simple garden box for my herbs for Mother's Day. I showed him a few simple ones I'd found on Pinterest, but he has a hard time with the word "simple"
He did a lot of it with fence posts. Then he added some kind of inner portion that kept the dirt contained and from actually touching the sides of the box.
I think it's pretty darling.
I panted a piece of wood in Robin's Egg blue and had Shane cut them.
I wrote on them with sharpie for my herb markers.
Chives and mint are in separate containers since I like the drapey look of chives and mint kind of goes crazy if it's not contained. And I needed just one little yellow pop.
I made the garden sign with an extra fence post and a bit of sample paint I had leftover.
Stencils are from Hobby Lobby.
In other news, I finally found plants that will work nicely in our constantly shady front entryway.
We used these perennials:
June Plantain Lily
Fragrant Bouquet Plantain Lily
and Ralph Shugert Periwinkle
(All at Lowes)
Don't forget to put your flags out on Thursday for Flag Day!
