Happy Sunday. Hope the week end is going great for all of you.
I decided to go out and re do my outdoor deck the other day. I wanted Terry to paint my table and chair set and I took everything off the deck to power wash and re arrange things.
|Well that just started a whole thing! I decided to take everything off the deck and power wash it and start to rearrange things as I put them back including the hanging baskets.|
|Normally these hanging geraniums would be to the ground and so lush and full. With all the rain they are very thinned out and not growing much.|
|I moved my lounger back onto the deck first.|
|I moved it from the corner of the deck to under the potting shed sign. I also hung back up a chandelier for night time.|
|Most of you that know me know I love to take the unusual and put them into my garden. I had this white vintage birdcage holder so I hung one of the ivy geraniums in it for a little whimsy.|
|I love my lounger for reading on a nice summer day.|
|Ok you got a sneak peak at the newly painted table and chairs.|
|This was the set I got at Walmart for $89 which included the umbrella. I love that this is a small table that seats four. Terry got out his handy paint sprayer...|
|Here is the set painted white. I love the lighter fresh look it gives to the deck. Now I need some cute cushions.|
|Great for dining El Fresco.|
|This really shows the hanging ivy geraniums so thin and scraggly. They normally are very full and lush. They just had too many days of rain last month. So now that we are getting heat and sun I am hoping with some TLC I can get them back on track.|
|I planted one of my baskets down into this vintage fire place log holder.|
|Just another unusual use of something for my plants in the garden. Love the chippy legs on this cast iron log holder.|
|All my baskets with petunia's are holding up pretty good to all the rain we had. They love it hot and sunshine too but they can take the rain.|
So just moving the plants around and rearranging and painting the furniture makes the deck feel brighter.
Have a wonderful start to the new week ahead.
