This year, what with the back yard being dug up because of the garage project, I've been focusing on container gardening. I've so enjoyed the petunias. This container was the base for a fruit basket we were given a few years ago. Punched a couple holes in the bottom, and voila!
When I sit out on this back porch I marvel at the lushness and color of the innumerable leaves. A marvel, indeed.
The what-cha-ma-call-it was left behind by the previous owner. I had spray painted it white, but this year, thought that red would pop against the new garage. Put some of my potted flowers in it. It makes for a pleasant wall garden.
The railings were originally stained wood. When I re-stained a couple of years ago, I used a white stain. Love how they pop. The stain really holds up and there will be no peeling like you would have with paint!
The white railings above and below transform the "deck" into a two level porch.
The day lilies and spiderwort transplanted from elsewhere in the yard have really taken off.
The $3 garden on the left is coming along nicely. Lilies in the back, herbs in the front.
And the $3 pack of asparagus came up, too!
Hope you are having fun in the garden. It sure does the heart good!
