Future Spring Projects starring April Rose and Friends

Hello my blogger, blogging friends. I hate that I'm not here as often as I would like. I hope to picks things back up in the near future... I love the benefits that blogging  has brought me...because for one, it has been a wonderful source for Journaling, meeting new friends and learning new things.

 This is also why I joined Hometalk.com a home and garden hub for people who enjoy DIY projects.
So between hometalk and blogger I'll be posting when time permits.. So without futher ado here's the latest.

I had to re-paint April Rose... ( photo above)  she was knocked over last winter by some neighbors who were moving and she began to peel.  If you are not familiar with her, take a look by clicking below:

Here she is re-painted with her friend on the balcony. It is raining to day so my plans  to complete them are on hold..  April rose is in the background to the left, her friend is on the right.

 I purchased Bamboo poles to hold them up, I don't now why I didn't think to do this last year with April rose she may not have been so easy to knock over.

Candytuf and purple creeping phlox wait to adorn their heads. I chose these because they have trailing habits and I like them... I hoping that these will have room to spread and grow.. I didn't consider the depth and space .. I have a habit of purchasing things that I like so I'm not sure if these will work in their heads..But the good news is I can swop them out..... Stay tuned and Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment..


  1. Well, hello Vesty. I just wondering the other day where you were. So glad to see you again. Hope to see more of you and your southern gardening.

  2. Hi Ann... I miss you guys! I hope I'm here a lot more.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. It's been a while since I've heard from you. I haven't been the best blogger of late either. Good to see you are back at it.

    What I wouldn't give to see some flowers blooming. Longest and worse winter I can remember. Thanks of sharing.

  4. Everything is so pretty, Vetsy! I have been wanting to make a stone face but haven't gathered the materials yet. Btw, I still recall your earlier post. Good job on April Rose and her friend :-) Happy blogging!!

  5. These will be awesome! I remember how cool they looked last year. :o)
