If you were here for last week’s What’s Blooming Wednesday, you remember this gorgeous English garden tucked inside the inner fence in my friend’s back yard.
Today, we’re venturing outside this gate – to the outer fence.
Some of you noticed that bright yellow window frame right away. Isn’t it awesome?
Don’t you love that pop of color?
Under the Rose of Sharon, this grouping somewhat repeats what was inside the inner fence. More Day Lilies!
This buzzing bumble bee caught my ear as I walked by.
I love the Canna! They’re so hardy…invasive nearly. Some people hate them. Have you ever known anyone who killed Canna – not on purpose? Yep. That’s me. I’m that one.
Sometimes green thumbs don’t come naturally.
Of course, you must have a closer look at the artwork – the ladder. Does this tickle your fancy as much as it does mine?
You’ll see it on my Ladder Inspirations Pinterest Board soon. You might have a similar idea board – or a gardening board – for Pinning.
I tried to capture the entire fence line in this shot. Notice the colorful bird houses lined along the top.
And the old door! More Day Lilies – and a rooster just for fun.
Is it just me? Is your heart singing with joy, too? I love all this back yard decor! I’m inspired by all these fun details. Are you?
To continue our discussion from yesterday’s post, A New Challenge, it seems that many of us have trouble getting rid of treasures for one reason or another. One trick I’ve used in the past (when I didn’t want to completely get rid of something) is to use it outside. I’ve decorated gardens and porches with chipped coffee mugs, cracked plates, small tables or chairs, non-broken but cheap pottery pieces I didn’t totally love – things like that.
What else could we put on porches or in gardens that we want to clear out from inside the house?
