I did a bit of outdoor decorating this summer – not much, but enough to make the inside pair a little better with the outside.
At the advice of many of you readers, I did not do the English Ivy that I really wanted around my garage. Instead I bought 3 of these Clematis plants (at least that’s what I think these are) and put them around each door.
To my delight they started wrapping their little viney fingers around the garden chairs and trellises that I bought from Home Depot.
I still love my rusted iron urns even though they were not serving a functional purpose.
I changed out my grey wicker chairs with a bench that I felt matched the house a bit better.
No, it is not as comfortable as the chairs. I also feel like lying down on it every time I sit on it, but refrain in case the neighbors look at me funny.
The Sunbrella cushion allows me not to worry about bubbles and water from the hose that may go astray.
Love weathered terra-cotta just sitting looking pretty 🙂
There’s quite a bit of iron & metal to fill in the rest of the space.
I found these cool rusted bells & rope to attache to my boxwood wreaths.
I could never have enough hydrangeas or stone.
Of course there is always room for an old box for play.
Now if only this humidity would stay away so we could play outside this week!
