Happy Memorial Day Weekend! It’s always nice to enjoy an extended weekend and it looks like we’re going to have great weather for gardening. We have just a few more things to finish up in the flower and vegetable beds and then we can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor. That, and enjoy some weeding along the way.
This weekend I’ll finish potting my aquatic plants for the pond. I bought a gorgeous night-blooming, tropical waterlily for the pond this year. It blooms from about 7 p.m. to 10 a.m. then closes up for the day while the rest of the waterlilies are open. This gives me the opportunity to enjoy seeing waterlilies after work. The day lilies tend to close up around 5 p.m. I’ll be sure to take photos and share them here.
Let’s move on to this week’s Friday Finds. It’s always fun to share a collection of inspiring things every week.
First up – you simply must check out this charming 500 square foot cottage in Norfolk, England called Spink’s Nest. It’s decorated with a gardener’s style and even has a throne toilet! What’s more, it’s available to rent for vacation.
When it comes to decorating, do you struggle with hanging artwork or other pieces on the wall? Kris shares her very handy tips for hanging artwork.
Would you ever move a house to a new location? An Australian couple moved a 1900s Queenslander home to a new location and renovated it. The result is a charming, light and airy home.
Speaking of renovations, you don’t want to miss the renovation of an abandoned Swedish home. Truly stunning and it goes to show what can be done when a little creativity and elbow grease are applied to a diamond in the rough.
I stumbled across these adorable, reversible linen and canvas fabric baskets on Etsy that can be used for plants or organizing household items. So cute!!
I’ll end today’s finds with a refreshing recipe. I’m always looking for new ways to use mangos and came across this Mango Lassi Smoothie that’s perfect for warm weather days.
Enjoy your extended weekend!
