Cooler temps have arrived here in the Midwest. My boyfriend and I are NOT a big fan of Winter and all that comes with it.
This is one of the last images we captured before our first snowfall landed. It’s very cold and damp outside and there will be more snow to come.
Therefore we have decided to continue this blog series throughout the Winter months using images we haven’t shared yet. Because realistically, who takes a catnap outside in the Winter?
Come Spring of 2016 we’ll be back out there! On the pavement, in the grass, and wherever else the project takes us. Thanks for following along.
The Fall colors are changing fast! Grab your camera and go on a photo safari.
Or…find a nice cozy spot and take a catnap.

Over the next couple of months I’ll be sharing some tips and ideas with you that I use in my own flower garden(s). I can show you that with a little imagination and a few bucks your flower beds will look awesome. Who doesn’t love a fun DIY project? Especially when it involves being outside in the fresh air.
First up, hosta plants. I love hostas! The simple fact that they’re low maintenance is all I need to hear. Plus, when they outgrow their space you can just chop them in half (or fourths) and plant elsewhere.
I had this little area of grass in front of my garage. It was a nuisance to mow so it was given a new look. My neighbor was selling hostas at her garage sale for $1. Score! My parents decided to update their landscaping and no longer needed the lava rocks they were using. Another score!
I wait until the end of Winter (when all of the snow melts) before trimming the dead leaves off of the plants. And that’s it. Mother Nature takes care of the rest.
As you can see in the image below the hostas are doing well. Exceptionally well! There are four plants total in this space, but one of them is hidden so I should relocate that one. Come Fall, the other three will be divided up and placed in other areas around the house.
