Today I get to go on a little road trip.
I’ll be over at Completely Coastal visiting with Maya and showing off a few things.
So come by and say HI!
Completely Coastal is filled with coastal inspiration and lots of great places to shop.
A one stop shop so to speak. You’ll love it there.
I've been spending a lot of time outside lately. Before it gets too dreadfully hot to go out there. I have been battling with the mosquitoes though. They are extra tough this year. Fleas also seem to be horrible. Is anyone having problems with them even though your pet is on meds? Ugh, hate it!
Anyway, I got a few new plants for the patio around the pool that I found on clearance at Lowes. Even plants go on clearance. You just have to catch them before they are totally fried.
Some can be saved, some can not.
I came across these 2 watering cans. They were left over from Mother’s Day I think.
I picked out the 2 best ones. Each container originally had 3 plants in it.
One was dead. The other 2 needed a little TLC.
I really didn’t want a pink can. It was cute but not the right color for the patio.
But I could change that.
The pot slipped out and I removed the fabric.
Then I painted the watering can in Peekaboo Blue by Krylon which I used here also.
I trimmed off all the dead parts and just watered it.
It filled out nicely.
I liked the yellow can so I left that one.
I added a white petunia to this one. It’s a little slower coming around.
But it will.
I need to trim off the ends so that it fills out more in the center.
It’s hard to cut off the flowers but it really helps the plant in the long run.
They ended up being 1.80 each. The petunia was .99 and the paint I had.
I got 2 nice pops of color for the patio for under 5.00.
I think that was worth it.
I have some more rescued plants I’ll show you soon.
Have you checked out the clearance section for plants?
Now zip on over to Completely Coastal and see what I’m up to over there!
