How will you update your garden this year?
What a ride of a spring! It’s really warm. It’s downright cold. There’s frost (even some snowflakes). It’s beautifully sunny. The only sure thing is that the calendar says it’s spring and consistently warmer weather WILL be coming.
How do your gardens look? Still leaf covered and winterized? Tilled, mulched and ready to go? Whatever the current state of affairs, here are some quick ways to make your gardens look fantastic.
1. Clean Up. This is probably the best way to spruce up your gardens. Cleaning out old plants and debris from the winter will instantly make your garden look neat and tidy.
2. Add color. Nothing speaks “spring” like some fresh color. This can be in the form of ornaments, painted rocks and painted twigs. Or purchase some pretty spring flowers in pots and simply place them in the garden for instant color!
3. Add ornamental decorations and flags. This is an easy way to add color and cheer. Nothing beats a warm “Welcome”!
4. Make some fun pathways. The possibilities are limitless. A few strategically-paced stepping stones can add interest and functionality. Smaller stones or pebbles, bricks, different colored mulch, and moss are just a few other ideas.
5. Go vertical. Build your pots upwards to add another dimension to your garden. Topsy Turvy pots are easy to install and bring a fun element to the garden. Tin ‘N’ Treasures at Kitchen Kettle Village has a variety of sizes and groupings.
Whatever you decide to do, be sure to let your creativity and style guide the way. For some fun garden hacks, check this out: http://www.buzzfeed.com/alannaokun/insanely-clever-gardening-tricks#.pbkp93nby

Take advantage of your time now at home to plan a future adventure when it is safe to travel again. Why not start planning your next trip to Lancaster County, PA? If you have visited before, you might want to stay a little longer or plan a few day trips to our area because there is so much to see and do.
In these uncertain times it is easy to feel negative and sad, but I encourage you to look at the glass (or jelly jar) half full. Here a few ways we can all stay positive during the COVID-19 crisis.
Whatever your preference, sleeping over at Kitchen Kettle Village is an experience not to be missed. There are studio rooms, one-bedroom suites, two-bedroom suites and “traditional” (if you call our one-of-a-kind decorating traditional) hotel rooms.
