The back porch gets the lions share of my decorating attention and the little corner of the yard that sits next door to it gets zip....nil....none! H rakes up the leaves in the spring and that's the last attention it gets for the year.
Here's how H and I gave this part of the yard it's own personality......
.H brought over the water tank that was in front of the green house last summer
I put the geese that belonged to my dad in the corner by the old water feature that quit working and is now a planter. I filled it with some silk flowers and hung a Sunflower sign above it.
The metal sofa and mirror landed up here.
|In a few weeks the fence will be covered with ivy.....it is already putting out leaves The ivy also does double duty as ground cover, so this corner will be pretty and green soon.|
The wreath I used was hanging over the wicker sofa on the front porch.......so now I will have to borrow one from somewhere else to put over the sofa!
The flowerbed in this area has been so neglected over the years that there are hardly any plants left.
When I can finally make a trip to the garden center I plan to fill it full of pretty plants.
I hung a sheep crossing metal sign on the gate.....
I'm not sure yet what I will do.....if anything.....with this area Time will tell!
The Farm Fresh sign you see hung on the left side of the photo is new......
I bought it a couple of months ago at Bed Bath and Beyond in the 75% off isle.....
The solar water pump hat I used in the tank last year to circulate the water quit working , so I need to find a new one.
I think H and I will enjoy having coffee here in the mornings!
