I spent a couple of hours on the deck this morning removing about a dozen ugly spent containers as well as the two framed planters on the lattice wall. There was still a few weeks of life left in many of my planters, so I reorganized those. I clustered the ones that still looked decent to show off their best sides. I even reused the green picture frames.
It has red Rembrandt dahlias.
I just pulled the red dahlia containers from this corner crate display of red and pink dahlias.
All of the pink were hit by whatever bug has been destroying all my dahlias, so I cut those back and just left the red with the sweet potato vine. This area is now home to my white glider.
I did a blue/green table arrangement in the area where the white glider sat all summer.
I have since decorated this area a bit, but the sun is washing out pictures, so I will have to show that on another post.
I think I should get at least a month of enjoyment from this new deck-or-ating. I am hoping to have at least one meal out here on the green table.
Look what DH found today:
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
