I’m going to be honest with you — I’m not ready for temperatures in the 80s.
And if it has to be hot and humid in April, I’m going to need someone to get me to the coast ASAP.
But here we are.
Birds chirping away.
Rain and humidity.
Bees angrily hovering over me as I water patio plants.
Pollen rapidly recreating the Dirty Thirties.
My hydrangea begging to be watered 4 times a day.
All that complaining aside, I’m so excited to share my latest Target finds with you! Our patio furniture desperately needed new cushions and some pops of color, so here’s what I decided on for the front porch.
I’m playing up the coastal colors, since our home’s exterior paint is (to me, at least) reminiscent of a Caribbean cottage! Still working on arranging plants and things, so I’ll share more photos soon. After all, I’m just dying to show you our bright yellow front door all over again.
The herbs (rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, sage, and cilantro) are all doing well — trying my best to keep them watered in this heat.
I hung out with my Mom earlier in the week and she whipped up a delicious (and simple!) warm spinach salad with quinoa, broiled shiitake mushrooms, and crumbled feta. The dressing was a classic mix of olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and cracked black pepper. So good!
