Even with the God awful hot weather here in New England my gardens & lawn continue to delight me! Each bed & container planting is prettier thatn the next & except for a few dry spots in the lawn it looks FABULOUS this year~So green & pretty (a rare thing for the middle of the summer!) Being busy with garden clients cuts down on my time in my own yard but you just can't tell this year! Everything is beautiful & I couldn't be happier!
Right now my backyard has never looked more lush & pretty! My backyard gardens are in FULL BLOOM right now & everything is just growing like crazy & putting on such a pretty show of pinks, lavenders, whites, yellows & purples & hot pinks! When I want to enjoy a quiet moment or just sit back after a long day of planting & maintaining my customers gardens, I like to sit out on my cozy deck. I have it just the way I want it right now with pretty pieces & even a pretty hand hooked rug right smack in the middle of the deck. I found a tablecloth that fit my round wrought iron table & bought some sweet shabby cushions for the chairs, added a wicker bird cage found at an antiques market & voila~a backyard room to sit and relax in! my husband teases me that even the deck has to be romantic. I just tell him that it's just an extension of our home so why wouldn't it be? We love having dinner out there & watching the hummingbirds on the coneflowers & on the butterfly bushes. Even the grandkids like to sit out here with their friends! I'm thinking of taking the deck down next year & just putting in a pretty blue stone patio so that the gardens & the seating area are all one. Who knows~it looks so nice right now we may just leave it alone & screen it in! The last picture is of me on my pretty pergola that is just wrapped in wisteria. This is near the deck on the other side of the house & divided by a pretty brick patio & walk that hubby just re-did. We love that area also! The wisteria provides such wonderful shade & when it's in full bloom just drips pretty purple blossoms! Hope all of you have a pretty backyard area to enjoy during the best time of the year! :)
