Phase 2 complete! SUPER PIC HEAVY Don't come in if you hate spring!
So I started with this lonely deck. :(
Then I added a few plants, phase one. I moved my metal trellis in to the corner where the street is so I could buy something that climbed and gave some privacy. Some hibiscus for the hummingbirds and my fruit and veggies. In the terrarium I had some herbs not ready to be planted. I also put my love seat and coffee table in to the back corner so that when we sat we had a view of the woods instead of the neighbors yard, or the street.
Phase 2. I added some mandavilla to my trellis. In a few weeks it will fill the whole thing.
Then I bought a bar height table with two chairs. I wanted a place to sit, eat or drink coffee but I wanted to be high up so my view wouldn't be looking through the railing. I added a couple of lanterns for the evening. I think it's kind of romantic. :)
Then I added another climber behind the table. It's a clematis that I will train to grow along the railing and up the hummingbird feeder.
Also in the window box I've planted columbine which will spread out and get larger.
Because I'm sensitive to smell, I didn't plant a lot of fragrances. Currently I have a jasmine which smells amazing, but it will stop blooming around the same time my lavender starts. Other than that, it's just herbs.
Now everything just needs to fill in! I'm done!
