I decided that the bright yellow potting bench would be the focal point. It was nice to make the silver artemesia floral arrangements under the shade of the big pine tree.
I moved the glider that has occupied this space all summer to the opposite side. I used the hanging basket hooks for baskets that I use for floral arrangements. To fill in the space below the baskets, I wired on two twig wreaths.
The chairs and bench that used to be in this area was moved down to the opposite end of the deck--near the buddelia bush--so that I can enjoy all the butterflies that love to hang out here. Can you see the butterflies?
There are always 4 or 5 of them on the Butterfly Bush every time I walk by. Today one of them brushed against my hand as it flew away. Here I caught a Monarch in flight! That was exciting.
Remember those bright yellow louvers that were behind the glider? I moved them way down to the far end of the deck.
I am sure I will change it again--at least one more time before the season ends.
