Do you remember, in one of my very early posts, when Steve and I first started laying the stones for our outdoor entertainment area? Well, we’re proud of how far we’ve come. This beautiful Pergola really made the area come to life.
Spending Time Outdoors, In My Backyard.
I’ve been Spending Time Outdoors quite a bit lately. As you can tell from the picture above and those below I’ve been working pretty hard. I refurbished my Adirondack chairs. Big difference right?
Living in Florida, we’re known for our rainy season. Over time, the ground settles and the weather takes its toll on the furniture.
After finally finishing the chairs I noticed how bad the stones had become. I cleaned and leveled the patio concrete step stones, they were a mess.
Dragon Lillies or Rain Lillies I love them all!
Between the two pictures above and the one below, I added a couple of new bird feeders and removed a couple of trees that were in really bad shape. I’m thinking, this looks much better.
How everything matures with time.
My bird feeder gets a lot of action from the neighborhood Cardinals. To the right of the bird feeder are my Hydrangeas. This picture was taken during the summer when everything’s a beautiful vibrant green.
A wrought iron bistro set brings a little charm to this part of the yard.
Ok, now this is Steve’s shed, I can’t do anything about the inside but I can sure help the outside a little. Placing a couple of small bushes and solar lights on each side. Filling those areas with the accents of white pebble stones. Finally, bordering each side with a mini garden fence.
I love Hibiscus but, it just so happens, so do the squirrels.
The Dwarf Boxwood Shrubs add a touch of green to the side of our driveway. As they grow they can be trimmed and shaped into the style of small box-like bushes.
My Comfortable Place is in the front carport area with beautiful flowers all around me. I spend a lot of time out here. Oh, and of course My Organic Hanging Herb Garden.
