Outdoor Decorating

Ahhhh.....Summer.
Warm weather.
Flowers.
Vibrant colors.

We wait for so many months
for our world to once again be alive with color.

Planting season....my favorite.
The vegetable garden is planted...
and soon will start to furnish us with
fresh, life-sustaining food that will last us
throughout the coming year.

After the vegetables are planted, I busy myself with flowers.
This year I have added many container gardens for
splashes of color around the outside of the house.....

On the clothesline....
On the upper back deck...
Around the pool....
The lower deck....
(the old Coke machine was an estate sale find)
Outside the barn...
Outside the garden shed...
Outside the vegetable garden...
I found this old cultivator at an estate sale...
This black-eyed Susan vine will climb onto the cultivator...

Weeks from now I will give you a peek at how all of this has grown.

By that time, my garden fence should be covered with flowering vines...
moonflowers, morning glories, cardinal flowers, and gourds.

Hope you are having a colorful day...wherever you are!

Beautiful! Do you actually keep soda in the old coke machine or is it now just a decoration?
