I've been busy this week trying to get the garden and the deck containers in order before the long weekend. I thought I would show you what is on my deck so far.
I bought two small side tables to use as plant staging on my deck this year. I already had two smaller ones, and I've combined them all to get the look of a baker's rack, without the steep price. I will add a hanging shelf soon.
The urn planters were from Michael's a few years ago. So far, I have a pot of blue pansies and some scented geraniums in them. The pansies will have to be replaced once the weather begins to get hotter. I'm thinking I may go for purple and orange as my colors this year... maybe a little chartreuse thrown in. :)
Another corner of the deck sports some lantana, nasturtium, and a standard hibiscus. I need to find some heliotrope to add to the nasturtium, and maybe some good old-fashioned marigolds. I'm loving all the orange that is so fashionable in decorating this year.
Well, that's about it so far. I did add a new cranesbill geranium to the garden yesterday. If the deer haven't eaten it, I may show you a picture tomorrow. lol
It's light out and the birds are singing here at 5:00 am these days, which means our cat has been bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and meowing at the bedroom door this morning. So here I am, putting the finishing touches on this post at 5:26 am.
Good morning, dear bloggers! :)
