#LolaSpotting

I hope you are ready for some #LolaSpotting. It's been a busy week here. We have 5 new projects to share with you. There are several things for your garden, some light lunch, and the perfect Easter basket for your little gardener.

Spring has arrived and summer is just around the corner. Provide a respite for your feathered friends with this Upcycled Birdbath. We made it from lamp parts and the lid to a galvanized trash can.

Next, create a DIY Garden Bench to use for long gardening projects or just to relax in your favorite outdoor spot. Make your spot even more lovely by adding the soothing tones of your very own DIY Wind Chimes. The simple instructions make it easy for you to create these projects, each in just a couple of hours.

Our last gallery for HGTVGardens this week is the Flower Pot Easter Basket. I just love this idea for a kid's Easter basket filled with pint-sized gardening tools, but it could be used in other ways, too. I considered painting the pot and filling it with more sophisticated treats for a grown up. The shape and leather accents make it perfectly suitable for modern or rustic applications for men or women.

Also this week, be sure to check out our latest article for The Daily Basics. This Mediterranean Chicken and Quinoa Salad is a must-make for your brunches and summer parties. It is light and delicious and filled with nutrition.
