Come join me on my deck for a little "RNR"...
Meet my friend "Ernie"...he's my favorite garden planter. I love his sweet face and vibrant colors!
My deck can get quite warm during the day...a cool drink is usually in order. As the sun moves from this side of the house, one of my favorite things to do is relax with my feet up and read a good book!
Also, if you click on the pic you will see my tall, outdoor candle chandelier. I have been collecting hanging colored glass with antique silver tea light candle holders for many years. I bought this iron, chippy, three tiered garden hanging tree from "The Pickled Hutch" http://www.thepickledhutch.blogspot.com/ a couple of summers ago...and I just love it! On a nice evening, I like to light it, as it gives off such a romantic ambiance!
It's wonderful to sit here sharing a meal or a game of cards with close friends. Sometimes, I start my morning with a cup of coffee and some lovely fruit from the farmers market. The beautiful pink carnations are from my visit to the market this morning. I had to have them, because they reminded me of my grandfather's garden (his garden was beautiful and fragrant) and the fun my brother and I would have while visiting.
Don't you love the mirror behind the flowers?
It is a favorite find from "The Pickled Hutch"...
