The weather is finally warming up! As I've mentioned eight million times on this blog, our life goal is to have a backyard, not just a rusty fire escape. So, just for fun, here are nine fun ideas for backyards...
Giant Scrabble pieces. (And above are planters with glow-in-the-dark paint—update: or so I thought! Apparently they're illuminated planters.)
A fire pit for roasting s'mores, playing guitar and gossiping with friends.
Fairy lights to make everything feel magical.
Hot pink paint. (Would you believe this English garden actually started out feeling "dark and damp"?!)
Orange trees (or avocado trees or raspberry bushes) for freshly squeezed OJ, homemade guacamole and toddlers with sticky fingers.
Family swings for straight-up chilling.
And for the kiddos: water play and giant bubbles!
What do you think? Do you have a garden?
P.S. Home inspiration: Painting doors and favorite wallpaper. And having drinks on the fire escape.
