What's bloomin in my neck of the woods

I really wanted to post a picture of my metal planter I've been working on, but I think the blue needs one more maybe in a couple days. However, I went and reorganized my deck today, so I thought i'd share with you guys what's blooming. :) These pics are from my phone, so it's really difficult to get much coverage. So I just took pictures in sections.


These are my pentas I just planted today and my white hibiscus I bought for 1!


I thought this canna was supposed to be orange to match my citrus lantana...but it bloomed coral. Oh well, it's still pretty!


I just planted the coontie in the corner today. Also, my pink begonias, little princess spirea, and my caladiums who've been blooming since march. :)


All my "houseplants" are down here since it doesn't get any sun on the steps. The right side is lined too, you just cant tell because of my big begonia up there. :) lol


Some more begonias and caladiums, a couple ferns and a crimson diplandenia next to my mom who was not happy to be in this picture. :)


I need to redo my swing since a storm took out the top this winter!


I got this little guy for a dollar while yard saling a couple weeks ago!


A couple little yard sale brass nick nacks that are currently rusting....(AND I LOVE IT!)


I got this mosaic lantern on the clearance rack and fell in love...I got the other little hangy suns at the dollar store...they're more for little things for my son to bat at while playing outside.


I got these last week from CVS for four bucks. They have a timer and the candle flickers from 9-1. They look kinda eerie....but it's a neat effect!

Well, thanks for looking at all my junk. None of my friends "get it." So I just thought I'd share. :)

How beautiful! I love the sea theme! Your little wheelbarrel is so sweet!!! And the display of clay pots...what a great idea! Your plants are thriving! Beautiful! Is that a lake in the background? Very relaxing environment! TFS! Bear Hugs! Kirk

RE: What's bloomin in my neck of the woods

What a great deck. The vignette corner with the wheelbarrow is really lovely! I need to snag one of those photos for our Inspiration album. Its always a treat to see pretty little areas like yours!

Your view off the deck is fantastic!! I'm totally green with envy.

hugs, Karen

RE: What's bloomin in my neck of the woods

I love what you did with your little wheelbarrows. So pretty! I like all your great finds. I really like how you hung the metal pieces on your table. Great idea! I really covet your turtle planter though.

RE: What's bloomin in my neck of the woods

All of it looks great to me, the little squirrel peeking out on the deck,"She sell seashells" sign & shells around. The blues work so well with the coral & pinks & white. Little guy by pool looks like a sweetie! Grandma doesn't like the attention! She does match beautifully in the pic where she is sitting in the chair, her shirt looks great with the empty blue chair, blues go together well! Love the pond(lived at a lake all my life until I came out here)Is the fishing good in it? TFS Jan

Lots of good GJ on your deck! And your plants are looking really good! I like your "She sells seashells" sign...I think I've seen it before that you painted it. and your rusty knick knacks are lookin' good! That mosaiced lantern looks like a great pc! TFS! Jeanne S.

RE: What's bloomin in my neck of the woods

what a wonderful place to hang out!
Love the stars. I'm so jealous of your turtle planter. i walk by one on a nearby street and have coveted it.

RE: What's bloomin in my neck of the woods

So many treasures! Love the beachy stuff and your location is great too! Love the little wheelbarrow planters and all of your plants!

RE: What's bloomin in my neck of the woods

We all seem to like the wheelbarrow planters-LOL
And I also like the fish on the table and the mermaid one...
