The weather here in the Denver area has been absolutely gorgeous and I’m itching to start planting some vegetables and flowers. We have an overgrown and pretty neglected yard that we’ve not done a whole lot to since we moved here a few years ago. It’s kind of an interesting yard, in that it’s got a touch of the Secret Garden feeling to it with 2 ponds (one working), a bridge, a gazebo and other odd things. Keep in mind that these words sound a lot more attractive to your mind than they are in real life. Like when you’re friend tells you that he looks exactly like Brad Pitt and then you see him and the only resemblance is sandy, blond-ish hair.
I am excited to add some raised beds this Spring in a sunny spot in the backyard. I believe we can start sowing some chard, spinach and other cool vegetables here soon in late March and early April. Do you have anything different planned for your garden this year?
All these Spring ideas really have me switching gears on what I’m responding to in terms of interior color palettes. I have 3 clients, independent of one another, who have chosen white oak floors for the homes and I’m absolutely loving the paler wood. I’ve been seeing a pleasant shift in interior color palettes. Let’s get our colors on!
Are you feeling the vibe yet?
“I used to live in the darkness
Dress in black, act so heartless, but now
I see that colors are everything
Got kaleidoscopes in my hairdo
Got back the stars in my eyes, too, yeah now
I see the magic inside of me”
