This past weekend, my Mom came to town and helped me spruce up the outside of our house by planting a few flowers & herbs!  Out back, we planted Lavender, Basil, and a couple whimsical flowers.

First we decided what we wanted to plant – and I’ve been dying to plant some herbs, so naturally that was my first pick.  Then, I knew that this was also the time of year to plant Zinnias and my Mom had some last year in her garden & they are beautiful, so this was definitely my second pick.  Once we decided what to plant, we made a trip to Target and Lowe’s to pick up some good ol’ dirt, the seeds, and plants we had decided to plant.  Then after cleaning out the old dirt from the flowers last year, we applied some new dirt, popped the plants {{and seeds}} in, gave them some water, and wa-la the plants were planted!

These Basil leaves have already been used in two meals – I am going to love having this for the whole spring-summer season!

I cannot wait to clip some of this lavender and place it around the house in cute vases – it is going to smell amazing!

As you can see in the picture below, in our flower bed out front we planted Zinnias, Cosmos, and Sedum {{which cascades over brick walls, etc.}}.  I cannot wait to see these seeds bloom!!
