This was last years rustic garden.
As you can see we live in a heavily wooded area. It is constant work and forever a mess. There is nothing pristine and clean about this area. We do love it though and enjoy sitting out by the fire, doing smore's and just kicking back. This year I decided to bring a little more color and fun to the gardens and front of our home....so kick back and enjoy your outdoor tour and all the changes I made this year......
This blue really is pretty, and I went a little hay wire as you can see coming up next
I also painted these chairs, they where Oak, and I painted and distressed them black
I recently made this cute whimsical wreath too, I actually saw one similar made here in blog land, I apologize for forgetting who, but if she sees it please let me know, so I may add her link I like to give credit where credit is due
My new Birthday present from my husband, I love it, he is so good!~ All my colors!
You pretty much know from the outside, how I decorate, as I bring the same theme and colors indoors
My Japanese Maple is just gorgeous this year. We planted it three years ago, and it was a twig tree, It really likes where it is
This arbor my husband gave me last year for my Birthday, I planted some Yellow Jasmine vine and it is really taking off. I will get a better shot later on in the Season.
I found these guys at an antique store a couple of years ago....all three for 5.00, then I found the mushroom to go with them.
If you ever need a cold beer out by the fire, here is an odd opener...hey it works it's whimsy and has four eyes
This arbor is planted behind the blue chairs near the outdoor fireplace. I am not sure of the name of the vine, but right now it has pretty yellow flowers on it, this is also near my kitchen window so when I look out I can see it
I love my copper Torches too, it looks cool at night when we light them
Oh look more blue what a surprise
This bench was red and became faded so I just painted in black last year, I am thinking maybe yellow this year...what do you think?
Hope you enjoyed your outdoor transformation tour as much as I did presenting it to you........
Great shadow shot here, boy am I tired!~
