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!
