our home goods are in storage.
When we first moved here in May, my spirits were high, and I was motivated to garden
on the patio. We even brought quite a few plants with us, the dear movers, bless their hearts, packed these plants up three flights of stairs.
I know, it sounds ridiculous now, just please overlook my crazy moments, moving does strange things to a gal.
And then, just as we moved in- the wretched rain began, for one full month.
The house plans slowed way down... and I lost interest in my patio garden.
I sound a little grumpy don't I...I know I do...
I took a good long hard look over this past weekend at our patio. and I was a little shocked
on how I had neglected my garden patio.
Right then and there, I said to myself, whoa Lady, you need to get with the program.
So come on out with me, I'll turn on the fan and we will have some sparkling water.
Have you ever had sparking water-oh my goodness it is so refreshing,
all of those little bubbles.
It is my new favorite drink, of course I still like diet coke, and probably always will...
especially if you also have some Doritos to munch on...smile...
1. Add Art
Lighten and brighten up outdoor corners and niches with Art.
So many great places to find outdoor Art nowadays.If you have a generous patio overhang
you won't need to be concerned with Art that is not specially made for the outdoors.
The overhang will protect your art and your furniture.
2. Add New Pillows
Pillows fade fast in direct or indirect sunlight, and you might just not have noticed how drab
they have become. Now is the time to find some great prices on Summer outdoor pillows.
They will brighten up your outdoor spaces immediately.
3. Add A Bouquet
We are in between Seasons,here in North Texas.
It isn't Fall, and it seems like it shouldn't be Summer-
Depending on your climate it can be more cost efficient to purchase some fresh flowers than invest in bedding plants to brighten up patio tables or refresh your containers.
I chose some fragrant and vibrant Stock to do just that.
4. Add Some Succulents
Succulents will grow anywhere, nearly in any climate for nearly anyone.
You should seriously jump on board this party boat, because succulents are a great way
to add interest, color, and texture to any spot on your porch or patio.
5. Add A Lantern or Two
Lanterns- in all shapes and sizes provide a great warm glow to any outdoor space.
I found this one at World Market for 90 percent off, this is the time to buy those outdoor goodies.
Most retailers are gearing up for the upcoming Holidays, and want to get rid of
Summer time decorations.
So, now my patio is ready and waiting to be decked out for Fall, I can't wait-
here I come Hobby Lobby...smiles....
Any tips on how you refresh your outdoor space?
