Blooming Marvelous

I got back from the schoolrun this morning just before 8am. The sun was shining and - gasp! - it felt warm. So I didn't go straight into the house, but spent 15 minutes cleaning the garage/boot of the car and tidying up the plants at the front door.



If there's one thing I love about the Flylady system, it's the power of 15 minutes.

But I felt we needed a bit of colour... So I bought some bedding plants at 11.30am. And by 12.15pm I was home and finished planting... Want a look? Here's my Ikea bag filled with goodies from the lovely wee florist in Vangede (the one next door to Danni Sko/Danni Shoes) at number 39 Vangede Bygade.




I started by filling this old tin basin that someone had put out for the rubbish collection.



Emptied out some weeds from an old pot and suddenly our main deck (which I can now see from the new kitchen) looks more inviting.





Here's the table on our round deck, where I have my mid-morning coffee. Sometimes - gasp! - in the sun.




And last, but not least, the latest addition to the collection of pots on the front step.




Hope you have a fantastic Friday and a blooming marvelous weekend! :)

Beautiful pansies!! I can't wait till it's warm enough to be planting at my house.

Diane,

Your flower plantings are gorgeous!

It's funny you should be planting flowers about now...guess what I did on Thursday morning? Yup, planted flowers (pansies and such) in MY pots...I swear we have some kind of ESP, LOL!

Hi girls! Guess what happened last night...the rain started and has continued all night and all morning!

Which was actually great because I was out *way* too late last night at the Magtens Korridorer concert (and therefore needed to laze around today) and my new plants got watered. Hooray! ;)
