Thank you to Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses for organizing this Front Porch Party! Have fun today visiting all the blogs that are posting photos of their porches, dream porches or decks (as in my case!)...
I just got a new 1GB XD picture card for my camera and WOW - it holds so many photos! I'm afraid I got carried away with my picture taking so don't feel like you have to scroll through all of my photos! I usually have to take a few pix, load them onto the computer, delete some from the card, then take more, etc... What a liberating experience a whole GB is!
This is our little deck, right off the family room of our split level 'cottage.'
If the fountain is turned on, you can hear it from inside the family room. There's something so tranquil about the sound of running water. And right next to the fountain is the rusty planter I got last week...
I always hang a fuchsia from both sides of my deck each year as they are a hummingbird favorite!
I bought the planter on the right last week; I've had the one on the left for years. I couldn't believe finding another planter identical to the one I had!
Some cherub heads and potted plants in an old crate.
Another fuchsia for the top tier of this old chippy white planter.
Sweet basil is planted in this cheerful cottage blue pail I picked up at WalMart last week.
A little grouping of impatiens, a garden bunny and a hedgehog at the base of the fountain.
An old chair with a hanging basket set down where the seat used to be.
Another little stone bunny with the teacup impatiens.
A little duck statue under one of the hanging fuchsias.
Many years ago my now-19 year old used to have a box turtle so one year I picked up this garden statue to remind her of "Nike."
The baker's rack is pretty skimpy since the flowers were just planted last week. Patience, Donna...
So after you've visited all the other porches and decks, come on back, pull up a chair, and we'll watch for the hummingbird. I'll have the iced tea waiting...
