April Showers Bring May Flowers
Spring is here at last and now we need to start thinking about what we can do outside to get ready for the warm weather.
Here in Michigan we wait and wait for the snow to melt and then we have to wait and wait for the moisture to dry up in the ground before we can haul all of the summer lawn furniture out.
When all of those things come together, we go outside and put the yard back together.... YAY!!
I can hardly wait to put out all the summer furniture, A few days ago it was sunny and beautiful, now there is a blanket of snow on the ground. It won't be long and all the spring flowers will be popping up and I will be complaining about the heat.... :)
Every year I like to buy something new for the yard. I love Benches. This year I'm looking into buying a new bench. Bench's are romantic and quant. You can put then in a garden or on the edge of a landscaped area. They are beautiful.
This criss cross back garden bench shone here is one I have my eye on. I love it because it is simple, I like the rich dark brown finish and the criss cross back. I will put this next to a flower garden that I have. I can see myself sitting at it on a spring or summer afternoon listening to the birds singing. I really love spring, where I life we have a lot of wildlife, so I will be able to sit on this bench and watch it all go on around me.
Pillows really add that special something to a piece of furniture. Changing the pillows can change the look of the whole area. I will wait to buy my pillows until I see the flowers in bloom.
This bench will be perfect for a quiet moment alone or a couple can have a glass of refreshing lemonade in the evening.
4 1/2 cups warm water
1/3-1/2 cup honey
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice - from about 5-7 large lemons
