Spring project idea: Make your own outdoor seating …
Every so often, I not only look at Pinterest, but I actually find a pin showcasing a project I’d like to learn more about.
One such example was this DIY outdoor seating project that uses pre-owned cushions, a dozen concrete block units, and four fence posts. Intrigued, I clicked through the pin and found a simple tutorial.
If you’d like to make something like this but don’t already have all the materials, have a look at Freecycle to see if someone in your area has some thing(s) you could use. A home-improvement reuse store — such as a Habitat for Humanity ReStore — in your community may have useful items. (For Habitat ReStore locations, look here.)

I’ve long since closed Pinterest, and don’t recall whose Pinterest “outdoor seating” pin I originally saw, but, well, thanks, Internet!

you could really plant these in any vacant lot if you didn’t get caught, the ones on this list I’m familiar with grow with little or no tending! Free the Bee!
I’m just reblogging this so my mom sees and then maybe one of my giftmas presents can be that she promises we can plant some in her garden because she knows how much I love bees. (Mom, I know your garden’s already pretty set for sage and lavender, but: hollyhocks!)
