Monday’s Make-it … { our garden revamp | Part 1 }

How was your weekend? Hubby and I went to see Sister Act the Musical with Raven Symone .. the musical was VERY entertainment (those nuns can dance!!!). I was a bit surprised how strict the theater was in not allowing people to take photos in the lobby  before the show started … kinda squooshing people’s excitement (turning smiles to frowns). I completely understand NOT taking photos during the show, and their reminder of it was funny … load speaker saying ‘Taking Photos During the Show is a SIN’ (funny!!!!). Anywhooo, our weekend also entailed GARDENING …… scouting nurseries for garden inspiration so we can MAKE our garden pretty. That’s me above spotting a flowering bush, then I saw the price-tag and almost fell over (seriously). So the mission is to revamp our garden ‘economically’ … we spotted hydrangeas for only $18 so we POUNCED on it .. and brought it back to it’s new home (hubby does the planting … he used to landscape in college so he loves this kind of stuff, me .. not so much … ewwww soil):

Aren’t the hydrangeas pretty. I went back to get PINK ones and they were alllll gone (cry!!!!) … people, it’s like garden wars over here, seriously .. you snooze, you lose, so needless to say that next time I see pink hydrangea .. POUNCE:

Can you see what luuuuured me to this nursery below? No, not the OPEN sign … the DONUTS (yuuuummmm! at the Westchester Greenhouse nursery):

Here are a few pics I took at the nursery in Larchmont, NY:

Do you love these roses below? They are from our garden (last year photos) .. the beauty of having a garden … is that I can easily bring FRESH flowers inside my home …..

And fresh fruits …..


I have been thinking of planting CARROTS this year to entice more of these to visit us: 

Ok, am I the only one that finds this sign below FUNNY? hahaha ok, ok, I can be a little immature sometimes!! … so which would you choose (giggle giggle)!

They beauty of a garden is that YOU can MAKE one whether it’s outdoors or indoors, real plants/flowers or artificial. I’ll share my indoor creation in a few hours since I already overloaded this post with 2,506,289 photos! Here’s a quick sneak peek:

    Great job making a mundane trip to the greenhouse entertaining! Your pictures are better than ever. Let’s see more of that garden you’re working on.

      Oooh, greenhouse visits are NEVER mundane to “me” …. surrounded by ooh so pretty flowers … wish I could relocate my office desk there (outdoors) … though I think they would catch on that I don’t work there!.

    So many pretty things!! Beautiful hydrangeas :)

    PS: The manure signs are kinda funny - I can’t decide if “composted” or “dehydrated” would smell less stinky but that one would be my choice, less smelly!

    Sounds/looks like a wonderful weekend. How I wish I had a garden to plant hydrangeas in.
