Our Weekend

Weekends like these just shouldn't end. Long weekends are the best. And we really didn't do much at all as far as leaving the house. We did the usual errands to the grocery store, Target, hardware/nursery, but that was pretty much it.  The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out, relaxing, chasing after our little one, grilling and just enjoying the weekend.

We did a ton of yard work. I did some container planting...


These planters are stationed on our front porch. This year I wanted to do more green with a pop of another color, so I chose the red verbena as the pop. I was going for texture, some cascade action, and a hint of red. 


I got both containers at a local nursery/garden shop last year. I unified the planters by doing the same grass and verbena, but chose different cascading vines. My goal for this year was very low maintenance, and all I'll need to do with these is water them.


We also did lots of swimming...


And just enjoyed ourselves.

Life is good. 

I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend!

  4. Love your stylish little Sheila in her stripes! Verbena is one of my favorites, it packs a punch and is easy to maintain. You'll have to give us a mid-summer updated photo, too! :)

  5. It was a perfect weekend for the outdoors, other than the odd shower on Sat. We enjoyed a lowkey weekend which was perfect.

  8. So glad you had a great weekend, Holly!! Your planters are so pretty! Flowers are on our agenda this weekend.

    Sheila is so cute in that striped bathing suit!! Has she been in a big pool yet? We were at a pool party this weekend and Maura loved it, spent like the whole afternoon in the pool with Paul...but I realized I need to get her some sort of floaty device/life jacket.

  10. So glad you had a relaxing weekend! Is the bright green spiller Potatoe Vine? That's what I was trying to find for my planters, but couldn't come up with it here :-( What a cutie Little Miss is - you're in for lots of fun in the sun!
