Summer Deck Photos

I just wanted to share a few pictures of the deck and planters before the blazing heat completely fries the poor flowers.

The hanging baskets were planted with sweet potato vine, new guinea impatiens, and a little yellow trailing flower that I can't remember the name of. They took a hit during the stretch of 100+ degree days we had, but they're starting to perk  up again.

I also have a couple of large planters with multi colored coleus, which I love because they seem to do well where ever I put them.

The new patio furniture came from Target.com and I'm very happy with it.  Its very sturdy, not crazy expensive, and the cushions are thick and well made with piped edges. We also have the chaise...so comfy!  I accented with my bright pink throw pillows that I made for the living room of the tiny house.  The color is perfect for the deck and plays off the beautiful crepe myrtle.




I'd like to get an outdoor rug for the deck, but not sure how well it would hold up. I'd rather not have to carry it in and out all summer. Oh well, Hunny doesn't seem to mind not having one. :)
Thanks for touring the deck with me!  Stay cool and have a great weekend, everyone!

Good thing you did your post now, before the storm blew through. Hunny looks completely relaxed on the deck. It's very pretty and inviting.

Kimberly-did you weather the storm ok? I'm hope so!!

I LOVE your deck-it's so comfortable and inviting and looks like the perfect place to hang out-Hunny has discovered that too, I think!

Your new furniture is wonderful and I love the colors of the cushions! They do play beautifully off your gorgeous crepe myrtle. In fact, all of your flowers look great!

I hate it when the temperature soars and my flowers wither up. It breaks my heart! I hope it cools off soon:)

Thanks Stephanie and Valerie!
No damage from the storm...the worst of it was north and east of us. We just got some well-needed rain. :)
But I was glad to have gotten the pictures taken beforehand.
