April Showers bring May Flowers

Hard to believe we are already in April, my favorite month of the year. Here in Los Angeles, due to the heavy rain we had during the winter months I'm hoping to have lots of beautiful flowers in the garden and around the city. It's also a great time to start cleaning out and re-accessorizing outdoor rooms and patios.

By adding drapery and a beautiful lantern a covered patio can be used as entertaining space to spend summer evenings enjoying the company of friends and family

Even if you have a small backyard to work with a little creativity can transform any size garden into an outdoor oasis

Container gardening is another way to bring beautiful flowers and even a small vegetable garden to a balcony or a side yard.

Plan your outdoor room, it will expand the square footage of your home and enjoy the few short months of summer entertaining in your new found space.
