May has finally arrived and it. is. amazing. Today is gorgeous. The forecast for tomorrow and the upcoming days look promising. Here are a few things we’re looking forward to this month:
1. Taste: It’s Oregon Wine Month, which means it’s the ideal time to learn about the region’s incredible wineries and the perfect reason to pop into your favorite wine shop.
2. Maintain: If you’re like us, you probably waited until the evenings warmed up a bit more before prepping the deck for use. With all the great weather at our doorstep in the upcoming week (or two!), it’s the perfect time to clean and maintain your deck before it becomes your home’s MVP for backyard gatherings and lazy mornings with a cup a coffee.
3. Plant: Speaking of backyards, if you’re thinking about creating your own produce, kitchen herbs, and/or flower garden, now is the time to get everything in their pots or in the ground!
4. Enjoy: last, but certainly not least, Mother’s Day is coming up soon: May 13th! Celebrate the special lady in your life with a delicious brunch on a clean deck, looking over a freshly maintained garden, while sipping a favorite Oregon wine. (See what we did there?)
In other news, the Portland market is starting to move and open houses are popping up everywhere! If you spy a home you’d love to check out, give us a call! We’re always happy set up a visit for you.
