Curb appeal is a BIG item for home sellers and that’s WHY we’ve been spending lots of outdoor time the past couple of weeks at The Frog & PenguINN.
Edging was done around all the front flower beds. Not many of the perennials are in bloom yet, but a few weeks there will be day lilies blooming in the front yard. Meanwhile, annuals were planted in several pots on the back patio and front porch and these are already in bloom.
See the photo below — it shows weeding done around the back patio and wildflower gardens — did I mention there was a LOT of wedding to do? All 3 of the backyard mulch bins were in use. The vegetable garden was also cleared and turned.Besides the yard work, Grenville re-stained the back deck and power washed and repainted the back patio enclosure. We’re expecting pears, peaches and apples from the back orchard — the blooms have been plentiful and beautiful this year.
Apples, peach and pear blossoms . . .
The 2 strawberry patches are also loaded with blossoms and Grenville and I are already planning on strawberry shortcake !
The back patio and wildflower gardens are not yet blooming. Daytime temperatures have gone from mid-70s to 60s the past couple of weeks, so everything has slowed down a bit — except the weeds.
Hope you are enjoying Spring IF it’s arrived yet — we’re hoping it returns before the Summer heat and humidity gets here.
