What does this post have to do with Frugal Fridays? I'm glad you asked!
Through the past few years, I've saved a few bucks here and a few cents there to add little things to my yard that would add some beauty as well as be useful.
The lilac for it's wonderful scent is right under my bedroom window so when it's in its short bloom in the spring when the windows are open, it will perfume my house- frugally!
The redbud trees were free and are beautiful in bloom and once they're big enough, the tiny flowers will make for a lovely jelly!
The apple trees (and other fruit trees) speak for themselves, don't they? :)
But- my frugal tip today is- enjoy your home and what the Lord has given you today. It won't cost you any gas or fast food, to simply walk through your own yard and enjoy whatever is in it. Even if it's just dirt! Let the kids dig in it and dig out a race track or bring a little bucket of water and make mudpies if it's warm enough. But the sunshine alone will give you a nice frugal boost this spring, even if you're holding tightly to the frugal wagon of life today!
|Anyone know what kind of butterfly this is? Beautiful!|
|Red Bud flowers. I was hoping for lots more of these this year to make jelly but my trees are still poking.|
|Heart-shaped Red Bud leaves|
|Apple buds and blossoms|
This pup offers tons of free cuddles, licks, hugs, and fun as well! :)
