Thanks to all of you who visited me over at Anita's blog on Saturday. I was thrilled to be invited over and really appreciated your kind words in return.
As you know, we recently cleaned and stained our back deck. Well, after that, it was time to place the furniture back and put out some pretty flowers. I can't tell you how much better it looks out here now! I should've taken a "before" shot. But, trust me when I say it was awful!
I moved the furniture in a different location this time. Now, our table and chairs are on the opposite side of the deck.
I borrowed two chairs from the table to make a sitting area on the other side facing the woods. We have used this so many times now! I don't know why I didn't do that before.
The deck steps down to our little vegetable garden too. So, everything works so well together.
I hung some flower baskets on this iron post across from the sitting area.
Don't look too closely at our grass. It needs to be cut! The area we seeded in grass is starting to come in nicely.
It will really take off in the Fall though when we can aerate and re-seed it. It's a cool weather grass and is meant to be planted in the Fall. But, we couldn't wait.
These flowers came from cuttings from my inlaws house many years ago. I don't even know what they're called but they are the most hearty flowers I've ever seen. I've done NOTHING to them and they bloom like this every year!
I love being able to see them outside my kitchen window too. (Pardon the sun glare.)
We still have areas that need to be planted with something out back. So, I have plans to bring in some more knock out roses and even some lavender. They will be seen from the back deck and through my kitchen window as well. I'm looking forward to that.
Hope all of you had a good weekend and are having a nice Monday so far.
Thanks for stopping by.
