Sprucing up for Spring!


It started the other day with switching out the clothes from
heavy winter clothes to now, light gauzy spring things.

On my "Houston list" was Sunbrella fabric.  This fabric continues to
get pricier and pricier, but, I prevailed and found this for $9 a yard.

Good thing, because I needed a lot of it for these two chaises.  In addition to having the
chaises recovered, we repainted them with black enamel paint.  My gosh, they look
brand new.  I've had them about eleven years.

I like the brightness of the colors.  I went to the nursery today and bought a few more
red geraniums and a couple of large bougainvilla.  Spent less then $20 for all of
that.

Even the Spring and Summer Goddess had a flower in her shell and stone hair today!

Love this mild sunny weather now when all the windows and doors can be open.

Happy Days.

Love your garden! I'm about to have my albañil finish my garden and I can't wait. I'm so missing my gardens back in Austin. Crossing fingers that our long hot summers in the Yucatan don't burn up my lettuce heads!

My gardens bring me perpetual pleasure.

Luscious fabric...
Hard to find good chaise canvas at $9 in San Miguel?

Carol Troy - I buy all my fabric in the USA, in Houston, usually at Hancock's as they have always had the best prices on Sunbrella. In fact, $9 a yard is below wholesale....
