When I was at my parent’s house a few weeks back, I took this picture of a tree out front that always has the prettiest white blossoms. From far away, it kind of looks like a tree full of cotton balls! I just love this aspect of springs, despite the Texas storms, it really is a beautiful time of year.
Although there are more summer activities to look forward to, spring is a more leisurely time of year. The slow place of winter is gradually picking up, but there is still a time to relax before the craziness of summer.
I LOVE making to-do lists because sometimes I have all these ideas of things I want to do, and I get too busy to remember them all! So, yes, I am a total list addict! Check out my summer to-do and Fall List for different seasonal inspiration 🙂
Things on my inspirational spring to- do list this year include:
Finish cleaning out yard and weeding.
Spring is the best time of year to clean up the yard. After the tornado we had, my hard is in SERIOUS need of clean up for sure. This time of year, I always hand pull as many weeds as possible before they grow out of control!
Finish stone path in the backyard.
Another project that has been put on hold due to storms, but we hope to finish this up very soon! I will share a tutorial on that soon! If you missed it last year, check out our backyard pergola, corner garden, and porch swing!
Spruce up the patio and pergola area with more potted plants!
I just finished up my potted mini rose series, part one and two. I can’t wait to add some more geraniums and hibiscus too!
The entire house!
Clean the Grill!
If you get my monthly newsletter, you saw that I mentioned grilling season is soon. I shared one of my favorite recipes with you, but our favorite way to prepare it is on the grill. My hubby and I are huge grill fans, so I can’t wait to get it all cleaned up and ready to go!
Take Ruger to dog park!
He hasn’t been since the fall, and it is his favorite place ever! Spring is the perfect time to take your dog to the park since it isn’t hot yet, and everything is started to green up! Ruger could probably play fetch for hours if we let him. I can’t wait for him to get back out there this spring!
Photograph downtown Fort Worth.
Downtown Fort Worth is one of our favorite places to go. I just love the architecture and unexpected places we always find. I was born in downtown Fort Worth, so it holds a special place in my heart. I have been working on some photography experimenting, and I definitely want to head there to take some more pictures before the summer heat!
Spring Tea at the Ashton Hotel.
This is also in downtown Fort Worth, but so fun. I took my friend there last spring for her bachelorette party, and we had a blast. I really want to go back this season!
Go bluebonnet exploring!
One of the unmistakable signs of spring in Texas is the bluebonnets. We always like to drive through the country to find the best bluebonnet patches.
Read outside as often as possible while the weather is nice!
Summer comes fast in Texas…so I love living in the moment of spring while I can. I’ve been reading some fun stuff recently, and I will be sharing a spring list soon. In the meantime, join me on snapchat (@alexisroch) for some recommendations 🙂
What is on your spring to-do this year?
