After being cooped up all week end, I was eager to get out in the back yard today and play in the garden.
H and I worked in the flower beds that run across the front of the sun room.
I tried my windmill in several places around the yard......
and it finally found a home on the white wicker settee.
Since the wicker settee seat is missing, some might call it a piece of junk......I see it as a planter for my windmill and flower baskets.
I "planted" the wicker seat with three baskets of flowers......
Then I stuck several pieces of metal art in my flower baskets.
This angle of the yard shows the flower bed on the front of the greenhouse on the right side of the photo....and the flower beds on the east side of the back yard (against the fence)
The pale green baby crib ends are a new addition to the flower bed. I bought them at a yard sale a few weeks ago for $10 and they were already painted just the perfect shade of green.....another trash to treasure !
I haven't had a chance to plant the black metal flower boxes above the crib ends, so they are filled with faux flowers for now.
The roses bushes are full of buds and a few blooms.....and the petunia baskets are full of pretty pink blossoms.
I need to get out in the morning and cut a fresh bouquet for the house.
From this camera angle, you can see the studio in the back ground. I have repurosed metal head and foot boards to create a border around the flower beds on that side of the yard.
There is a pretty hanging basket of flowers on each side of the porch......
I have big pots of boxwood on each side of the porch steps H made our back porch several years ago by repurposing a head and foot board to make the "rails" for our porch.
I saw on the 10 day forecast that we are going to have gorgeous weather for a while.....hopefully no more "snow surprises".......lol!
