Planning an outdoor living space is just what the doctor ordered to bring us out of difficult times and back into the healing energies of nature. The last 2 months of COVID-19 self-isolation have kept up indoors, looking out. Longingly. Here in Alberta, March and April brought us more snow than spring showers, however, it looks like we may have turned a corner. The weather is warming up and I discovered my first hillside crop of crocuses.
The crocus, with its lovely soft mauve petals and sunny yellow interior, smiling like the sun, has always been, for me, the first wildflower to welcome spring. My daily solo walks have me longing to spend more time outside.
Over the past few months, we have decluttered, organized, cleaned out, sorted and reorganized our homes. Now it’s time to bring some of the outside in and start making plans for outdoor spaces as well.
The Victoria Day long weekend has typically been the time (May 24) when we start our spring planting in this part of the world. To help you get into the planting mindset, here are 5 timely ideas for planning an outdoor living space, and to bring nature indoors as well.
