Green thumbs and some splinters

This weekend was home-improvement weekend. I bought seeds a few weeks ago to plant some perennials and a few other flowers. Since it's still a bit cold outside at night, I started some indoor planters for my seeds. So, a big bag of potting soil, a bunch of random containers and some $1.50 packets of seeds and some "encouraging" from the planter (I talk to my plants every day and Matt makes fun of me). I'll post pictures from time to time of (any) growth.

After I finished planting, and Matt and I "tilled the land" to make some flower beds around the house, we discussed removing the railing off from around our deck (only 2 feet off the ground.) We have high hopes of "renovating" the deck for the summertime. A privacy wall, to block off our neighbors yard, a grape arbor over the deck to hang lights on perhaps, and some built-in seating for friends to join us. Here is a video of Matt tearing down the railing. It took about 5 minutes.

Wow . . . I think that railing must have been a safety hazard! Glad you took it down. :)

Happy planting!
