Welcome to week two of the Curb Appeal Challenge!
Gardening is so important to me.
I always remind my husband how color in the garden can do wonders to brightening up the exterior of the house. So he did some research and found that deers don’t like butterfly plants, so we went with those!
But, as much I love nature and all its critters, If I see a deer eating my plants! I sometimes look the other way because I know he or she is hungry…
then I walk outside it leaves.
Here is what the circular garden area looked like before we planted the grasses and flowers. Once everything was planted! We turned on the sprinkler system and left it on for a good 10 minutes.
They don’t require that much water though-out the summer season.
Yes, my husband and son did all the work planting. I was originally was going to help out, but since my son was home he took my place. He is much faster than me. Plus, any excuse to sit back and relax, I’ll take!
Now that everything is planted. Butterflies started coming around. It was amazing! Everything look greener but in a few weeks the butterfly plants will be bigger and fuller. The color will be much more noticeable.

So whats next? The garden stool arrived, so I am working on arranging them in strategic locations. I’m also looking at different rugs in the Baltic blues, similar to the mood board. I’m trying to figure out if I want to stencil or make the pillows from scratch. Like I said, so much to do! Can’t wait to see what other bloggers are doing next week for their projects. Don’t forget to visit all the other gals projects.
