This is where I sit. My color scheme on my deck, obviously, is red, yellow and black
This is my view
Last Memorial weekend was just beautiful! Hubby (unwillingly) helped me work outside for the weekend to get the yard and gardens in order. And when I say help, that's what I mean. He'll do what I ask, but with a little growl! He would never think of what needs done on his own. Why does he think this is unnecessary work? Being the organized person I am, I knew with our schedule that we had to get as much done last weekend as we could. Every weekend up until the 4th of July is booked. Then the weekend of the 4th we're having a party. Planning ahead and scheduling is the only way to do all this. I would prefer to not be quite so busy myself, but that's just the way our life is right now.
I still have quite a bit to do, but I feel much better with this good start. More flowers will be added, weeds will continually be pulled, and a few more old leaves and sticks need to be picked up.
My little garden in front of and under my deck is coming along.
These "angel wing begonias" I just found at the farm market. I've never seen them before.
The impatient I just got today.
Then I found this cute little wall hanging at JoAnn's at 50% off today.
My perennial garden beside my shed always looks a little wild. But I kind of like it like that. Deer can really flock to this place in the middle of the night, so it's very difficult to grow.
I have butterfly bushes that are coming up but won't bloom for a while. Out growing season comes late and doesn't last long. The chiminea we had for years on our deck, but after so many years it started to disintegrate, so Hubby stuck it in the garden. I kind of like it there. I'll stick some flowers in it later.
My seating area by the lake still needs cleaned up, but I at least got the furniture cleaned off from winter grime. Fresh coats of pink and blue paint have been applied where needed. Pink and blue is my color scheme for this area.
I had this old bird cage that was getting very rusty, so I decided to just paint it pink, too.
I love this sitting area in the evening with a glass of wine and when the kids are here we'll roast marchmallows and make smores. They'll be here Saturday night, so that's exactly what's on the schedule as long as it doesn't rain!
