I can feel the days counting down to our average last frost date. Which by the way here where I am in Duluth, Georgia is April 1st. Find yours by googling average last frost date and your zip code. This is an important garden stat as it tells you when to start your seeds both inside and through direct sowing.
In my garden this week, I thinned out my buttercrunch lettuce starts. I used the extra starts in the bed right next door. I know some people just thin their seeds, but I also like to reuse those starts if they are health.
I also started a second round of snapdragon seeds this week inside as well as scabiosa seeds to add to my cut flower gardens. They are looking healthy and the scabiosa germinated very quickly!
The last item for this week in the garden was a hard prune of my perennial limelight hydrangeas.
What are you up too this week in your gardens?
We've finished the wood ceiling planks. And now it's time to update the room color. We will be working with clare.com to order all of our paint supplies and color swatches this month. We are looking between Coffee Date, Dirty Chia and their newest color Subrosa. Which would you choose?
Our laundry is due for a quick refresh. So I plan on adding a gorgeous wall covering, and a fun feature to the ceiling. Plus, we will update the cabinet paint color, hardware, and add a new sink skirt.
Primary Bedroom & Bath
We are looking forward to updating the paint colors in our primary suite. I love our furnishings, and accessories. But I am ready for fresh color in this space. Shop my current furnishings here.
I'll let you in on the color changes coming soon! The current color as it is still very popular is Sherwin Williams Copeland Blue at 50% intensity.
Garage & Gardens
You can always follow along on my latest gardening adventures on @wideskygardens. We will be overhauling the garage and moving out all of my gardening storage to a new space. Stay tuned for these changes to start this Summer!
