Presenting The Deck



It all started with a dream, a thrifted table, and a can of spray paint.  Oh, and a very kind husband, who did the painting! We added a few finishing touches, like a discounted umbrella and stand, retail chairs and pillows for a touch of whimsey.  Actually, the pillows were needed to tie together my theme when I could not find an umbrella that would!  Who knew that umbrellas sell out quickly? I am so pleased with our "new' deck.  Time to go enjoy our lunch outside.

Box Gardens Finished

Box number one.

Box number two.

Box one with marigold plants, sun flower, and zennia seeds.

Box two with sun flower seeds, tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, parsley, and catnip.

Box two with tomato cages added,and after bunny damage. 
I love, love, love raised garden boxes!  It brings me great joy to watch things grow.  I cannot wait to use the fresh herbs, and spoil my cats with fresh catnip.  I am hoping the bunnies will leave the garden alone, after finding 2 tomatoes damaged, and 2 cucumbers nibbled on.  We have already started to see seeds sprouting. These boxes are going to be awesome!
