Sure it snowed on May 1st but after two consecutive days of temps in the 70’s, officially declared it Spring in Colorado.

Ok, ok AND I was peer-pressured by my neighbor Debbie 🙂

 So, you should stay home some weekend and work on your patio.
I’m working on winning ‘best patio on Snowberry Lane’ this summer.

Sure…seems friendly enough – but I could read her subtle subtext.  It’s obvious, right?  Competition is on!

Headed out early a.m. with Stephen (who was not flying out until later that afternoon) – destination: Home Depot.

Goal was to buy something that would survive our perpetual sunshiny days.  How many times did I plant & re-plant black-eyed Susans last year?  Ugh.  This year I decided on tomatoes (in addition to flowers).  If you’re gonna dream, dream BIG.

The plan was to transform my front patio & then of course inspire/razz my neighbor.

Unfortunately I got caught in the act…sooooo my evil master plan unraveled rather quickly.

Nicely done! I’m impressed  Sorry I spoiled the surprise. It was pretty funny!

 

If our tomatoes take off, we can open our own little Snowberry Lane farmers market this summer and make some big $$$.

Not just me.  Passive aggressive, right?  HAHA!!

Have to admit I lucked out with neighbors.  A-ok with my lock on 2nd place 🙂
