There is now a touch of spring in the larger terrarium. I added a nest with pastel eggs and spring flowers.
I don’t have a lot of storage space for holiday or seasonal decor. So I like to add small suggestions of the season around my apartment.
Here’s a close up where you can see inside a little better.
Spring weather means that soon I will be able to plant outdoors. I’m thumbing through gardening magazines for inspiration on what I might do on the patio and plant this year.
Of course March still means there could be bitterly cold weather, as does much of April. So it will be awhile yet. About six weeks I’d estimate.
I love to not only garden on the patio, but also decorate the patio as well. After all, my patio extends my living space and is an ideal place to relax with morning coffee or to spend an afternoon reading a book.
The pupsters love it out there. Charlie looks for varmints like squirrels. Abi is not crazy about squirrels, so she spends her time mostly watching me.
In a small home, mirrors serve to visually extend your space. I like to use mirrors in areas where they reflect a pleasing sight back to me. Like the red poppy canvas hanging over the coffee bar.
The other day at the grocery store I purchased a somewhat straggly pink hyacinth. It was only $1.20. I already planted it outdoors. The blooms are pretty ragged, so my hope is that it comes back next year.
Are you feeling like bringing in a bit of spring decor yet?
