Garden Sunday

Our new place needs a little TLC. And, so does our balcony. We have yet to find a bistro set we love or a grill that fits our budget and space limitations. So, this weekend I promised myself I was going to spruce up the balcony with flowers. Hey, it may not be functional but at least it will be pretty.

Nate and I began by picking up two window boxes at Home Depot. While Nate installed the boxes on our balcony, Rachel and I hit Old Town Gardens to shop for the fun stuff. We scored a deal and walked away with begonias, marigolds, violet stars, herbs and peppers for $40! The selection wasn't huge as most people don't wait to begin their garden in August. But, we did manage to create something beautiful.

These are going to look great as we transition into my favorite season, Fall!

Thanks Nate and Rachel! It is always great to have a boyfriend and a best friend that will lend a hand. Or in this case, a green thumb!
