Spending my Sundays in the garden has been my little slice of escape during this crazy time of quarantine we’re going through. Have you guys got your gardening on yet? Since the stay-at-home order hit I think it went something like make a Tik Tok video, bake some banana bread, make homemade bread, do at home workouts and now everyone’s gardening.
Well I jumped on that train and decided to spruce up our backyard, seeing how we’re pretty much back there all day. I wanted add a “Joie De Vivre” vibe to the space, where it felt like I could be somewhere off in the hills of Tuscany surrounded by beauty and vibrant color. As soon as I saw this bougainvillea tree at my local nursery I knew she had to come home with me. She’s so beautiful, bold and screams Joie de vivre. I also added in some pots of jasmine because they smell like fresh sunshine and romance to me. For some color I added in some Marigolds and daisys because they remind me of my sweet Soleil and just make me so happy.
Creating this space has been so therapeutic for me. Carving out a little sanctuary that I can tend to and in turn fills me with all the good stuff was exactly what I needed during this time. Check out my YouTube video and Garden with me!
