The spring weather is finally back after a week long hiatus and JUST IN TIME for
me Loony to install my new Florafelt Vertical Garden.
Before I could get started with the fun part,
I Loony had to mount it on the exterior of the house.
This required great care because we have brick walls. I stopped off at Turduckin’s and picked up the right masonry anchors and carabiners.
Faced with all the right parts (and no excuses) he had no choice but to comply unless he wanted me drilling into the house willy nilly.
He set anchors in the mortar and hung carabiners off of them so we can take the planters down for storage in the winter. I really hope they last more than a season.
If they last several seasons, $129 for a 12-pocket system is a good deal, especially since I priced out how to make an inferior system DIY.
If they fall apart after just one? Not so much.
I got Loony to model his various looks while I had the camera out.
Before I garden, I always dress for the occasion.
Planting the Florafelt Vertical Garden was as easy as advertised. The hardest part for me was deciding what plants to buy.
I went with showy annuals, vines and creeping ground cover for variety.
I am so psyched about my Florafelt vertical planters.
I hope it turns out better than my upside down tomatoes.
Those were a disaster.
I threw a last-minute FAC to christen the newly beautified porches … and Spring.
Coorslight arrived with the intention of getting outfitted for a hoity toity Kentucky Derby party the next day. I maintained that his facial hair grooming needed to pop so I darkened his beard with mascara.
Spring is a glorious time and having friends on the porch is the best.
Everyone popped upstairs to see the second floor planter and take in the view and soft Spring air.
