I am not a big fan of the bolder patriotic colors......the red white and blue looks out of place with my pastel decor. So, I decided to use a very pale red.....kinda pink, hehee ......with a pale blue instead of navy and the traditional white!
I made a "flag style " flower wreath to hang on the side of the studio.
Then, I put baskets of flowers in the same colors below my wreath.
What are all those baskets in you ask!
They're in my big pink bath tub out in the back yard.
We haven't refreshed this area since we painted the brick on the studio white back in 2013. We pretty much cleared everything out except the tub. The photinia bushes that were growing against the wall were not in very good shape, so H took them out.
We had the tub in front of the headboard before and we decided to put the headboard behind the tub this time
Here is the before that was taken in June of 2013 with the tub in front of the iron headboard.
This is all we got done today, but there is still lots more to do before this area is finished..
I want to add some things on each side of the wreath and fill in the flower beds.....add some seating......
I have two pots of Geraniums on each side of the tub, they may stay or not...lol!
Here is the flower bed just east of the one we worked on today.......
Here's a photo that shows more of the yard to the east of that area......
I want to wish everyone a blessed Memorial Day week end......
