The weather was beautiful yesterday, so I had a chance to photograph my backyard patio…here’s what it looked like last year…I haven’t made too many changes…just working on filling in my garden and adding more accessories…here’s how it looks today.I saw these pot holders in a Crate & Barrel catalog, and knew they would be perfect to dress up my fence. Here’s a wider shot..I really wish I could get rid of that giant (unused) propane tank, but since I just rent it has to stay.Someday I’ll actually get that stump cut, sanded, oiled and moved inside to my basement family room…but, it’s working well out here in the meantime.
I love see how the garden changes each day…by August all my plants (if everything goes as planned) should fill out all the holes.I decided to stick with a color palette of flowers in orange, yellow and magenta…they are such a bright spot in my largely shady garden.I still need to recover the cushion for my ottoman, but sewing is not my favorite, so i’ve been putting it off…it might get done by the end of the summer.
Hope you have a great weekend! We’re celebrating my little boy’s fourth birthday this weekend…such a fun age to celebrate. Hope you have a fantastic weekend as well.
