going green / outdoor planter roundup...

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. We celebrated with my family on Saturday due to work schedules, so Tim and I had a quiet, relaxing Sunday to ourselves. We pulled our outdoor furniture out of storage and I soaked up the sunshine for about an hour, with bright pink cheeks to prove it :) this weather is sooo good for the soul.

Tim and I have been putting together a list of outdoor projects and I cannot wait to get back outside! Each year I try to learn more about gardening and I think this is the year we'll start our own. I've never had a green thumb, but it's not black, so that's something. I'm taking baby steps and planting herbs in pots this year, which is kind of noncommittal and just enough for me. Herbs can grow like crazy and I don't want half of our yard consumed by mint come summertime!

I'm always on the hunt for outdoor planters, so I thought I'd share some of my favorites since planting/potting season is officially upon us!

Are you planning a garden? If so, do you plant right into the soil, use raised beds or take it slow and plant in pots? There are so many pros and cons to each option, and I'm always curious to know what other people are doing. Green thumbs, please share your wisdom with me!

Happy spring, happy warm weather, & happy Monday!
