I’m hopeful that the cold weather is behind us and warm days are in our future! I’m so ready to open the windows and dig in the dirt! I’m going to try my hand at a vegetable garden again. I did one last year. And then I weeded it twice and the morning glories took over and it became a jungle. A big, abandoned jungle. Since I’m hopeful that warm weather is just around the corner, I thought I’d share some outside inspiration pictures!




Is that a charming front porch, or what? I was trying to think of a place I could put corrugated metal like that, but I don’t know where it’d go. I love the way it looks as a backdrop for those gorgeous pots!


There’s a great tutorial to make those planters on wheels over on Gardenista! Maybe I have a thing for corrugated metal.. it’s the backdrop for these lovely plants, too!

outside chalkboard


How fun would it be to have a giant chalkboard outside? It’d be cute to have an outdoor dinner party and write the menu on it!

mason jars


How charming would it be to hang some mason jars from the trees and enjoy some candlelight in the yard?

pallet walkway


I love pallets and I really like the idea of using them to make a walkway!

rocking chair swing


I’m pretty good at finding cheap, junky chairs. I’d love to turn one into a swing!

I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so we can spend some time working outside! Do you have any projects waiting for warm weather? Are you a gardener (or are you trying to be one, like me)?

  1. My garden had a similar fate to yours last year. I hope that I can be more productive in the yard this year!

    • You and me both! I’m determined to spend a little time each day outside in the garden… our yard needs lots of love and I’m really looking forward to warm weather so we can be outside more!
