Finally, the winds have rested. The gods must have heard my plea!. I have many chores left undone. Saturday proved to be a very positive day to start my scheduled tasks. As I had finished the sliding glass door, cleaned it up with water/vinegar solution and old newspapers, it was now gleaming. Yey!
Then, while the kids had finished sweeping up the front yard. We took another time to pull out some weeds and decided to perk up that dry corner of our front lawn.
Summer to my family means more days and, perhaps, nightly hanging outside, barbecuing or just feeling cool breezes when summer heat began.
An additional space (open space) for hanging out beside our hut is a welcome idea for the kids.
These thick tree branches were cut off by husband few months ago and left there until it began to rot a little. Thought I could use it for hanging out plants and as yard decoration, too…
And, so, we started piling them out in the yard, and the kids hang little orchids in them (hope the kids wont forget to water them all throughout this summer, lest they all withered away).
Yes, it was hot that day, but the kids had fun helping me pull off the simple project…
The woods were lined up, a make-do table, a wrought-iron chair, and few cacti plants.
Found me this short thick slab of wood and make it as plant stand with a matching native basket on top, and few greens on the sides…thought the theme blended together…and, the colors, too…with brown elements from the woods and the basket with the green plants and red blooms…
Oh. Before I forgot, the round table was an electric cable’s coil stand, and, I thought it was too good to be junked. So, I forced hubby to find me a sturdy stand and he was quick to have found a piece of a tree trunk. An instant table. Perfect for that al fresco dining/barbecuing!
Good to go for the summer heat. We’ll have to wait for the rainy season so we could add more greens into the area…
What a great accomplishment for a not-so-windy Saturday!
TIPS FOR THE DAY:
-Don’t forget to water the plants everyday especially during summertime.
-Watering the plants at daytime will caused the water to evaporate too easily making the soil dried up too fast.
-I thought, it is best to water the plants at EARLY EVENING.
