Spring = Change = Projects for home and property (Challenge!)

People forget that in the past Spring cleaning meant not only to air out the house and clean up from the poor weather, but it meant repairs, preparing the ground for gardening, and more. It’s that way in my household. Though I don’t have to replace a rush covered floor or muck out where the animals slept like in the medieval times and prior, I still find myself and my husband looking at the color scheme of the house and agreeing that we are not happy with the colors of three areas (Den, dinning room and hall) We already changed the color in the den from gray and plum to shades of green (Much better!) Now we are trying to find a pale orange which is also bright rather than dark for the hall and greens for the dining area. We are also looking at planting flower patches outside instead of just veggies and herbs. I want colors but finding vibrant perennials which survive in zone 4 is nearly impossible! I found out he also wants 2 shed (one for his tools and one set up for crafting and a tea house), and a double carport. It takes away space from my gardening but they are needed. I want to do certain styles so it will fit into my idea of a meditation garden (which I still argue with him about). We have maybe 3, but more like 2 good months here for outdoor projects. The rest of the time there is snow, cold and ice to contend with. My challenge to you is to actually put together a plan for you Spring Project lists. And post them. I bet we can actually come up with a lot of great ideas if we share them with each other! BB
