Makeup/life tip: if you’re into faux freckles but don’t want to spend the time painstakingly drawing them on your face, may I suggest gardening on your deck on a windy afternoon?
After I posted this pic on Instagram stories I got several nice compliments on my amazing freckles.
The Lady Sanctuary (also known as the deck garden off my upstairs bedroom) is back in business!
I went with things I’ve planted before because I know they should do well on my deck — snapdragons, salvia, cosmos, fuchsia, daisies, and these gigantic marigolds that are as big as my face.
Tabs isn’t allowed on this particular deck. He hangs out on the deck off the living room downstairs because that’s where his Tabby Command Center and the household catnip forest are, but since he also spends a lot of time sleeping on ze bed, I thought that a couple of plants up there would attract hummingbirds.
They seem to love the salvia and fuchsia.
This way Tabs has something ? to look at while he’s relaxing.
I’m thinking of grabbing a few more planters, though. I saw some cute ones at Marshalls and HomeGoods that I might get this weekend… Oh, and you know what? I think I’m also gonna get some outdoor rugs (I saw some cute ones at Target) so I can take Connor out there with me and not have to worry about our feet getting splinters.
Gardeners, talk to me! What are you planting this year? Have you started yet?
