Deck and Patio flowers in May

Good morning! I hope everyone had a nice Memorial day weekend. We had a busy and fun one. Today I thought I would share what I have done on the deck and patio. I found these pots at Lowes a couple of months ago and fell in love! They had 3 different color combinations and I went with this blue and green design. With my flowers this year I went with lots of COLOR!
 Red and yellow celosia. I have never planted celosia before. Can't wait to see how it fills in.
 Love this blue pot.

 I repainted my fish, it was getting faded and now looks much better.
 Pinks and purples in this pot.
 I moved the frog to the stone wall and brought these fish out.
 Looking down from the deck.
 It was windy when I snapped this one:)

 I have pink, yellow and orange zinnias planted all across the back but haven't mulched yet so will share later:)
 The "coffee table" is also a fire pit for in the Fall.
 I got this iron bench at Lowes many years ago and just love it.

 This is approaching the patio from the side of the house.
 I do have some more celosia planted here since I took this picture.

 I have 3 solar lanterns coming down the steps, so they are lit at night.

 The other day we had 12 water lilies blooming!!!!

 I had this pot on the table first then decided to hang it out front on a hook.

 We have 2 of these iron lanterns that we got at Longwood Gardens MANY years ago.
 Beautiful begonia!

 Love my cranes:)

I am having a little procedure today so would appreciate good thoughts. I found a lump in my breast about a month ago and had a mammo, and it is just a sebaceous cyst. But now it has abcessed so I have to have it out.  It is pretty painful right now so I will be glad to get rid of it!

XO, Pinky

Lightening Up the Mantle

As the weather FINALLY gets warmer and more Springlike, I like to lighten things up a bit. So, I redid the mantle. It was too heavy and was bothering me. Here's what I did: I removed the garland, made a new arrangement and used lots of birds!
 The hearth is a little lighter too. I placed a bunch of dried lavender in one of my vases and it smells SO good!

 Since the artwork has a blue and white jar with a bird on it I used blue and white birds, blue candles,and a small blue and white piece.

 The candles are LED and give a soft glow at night. The blue bird is perched on a nest which is perched on a glass candle stick.

Thanks for your visit. It means alot to me.

A Mother's Day Gift means a new Vignette

Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's day! I sure did and if you follow me on Facebook you can see some pictures. Joe bought me a GORGEOUS orchid so that meant a new vignette on the coffee table. I really love it and am going to TRY to keep it alive:) It is the most beautiful color!

 This flower on the back is so pale and I imagine it will deepen.

 I made the vignette in my white metal tray that I love for Spring.
 I had to use a piece that would be tall enough to work with the height of the orchid.
 This guy is one of my favorite Asian pieces.
 Of course a nest was added for Spring.

 I placed 2 of my pear candles in a blue and white bowl.
 And at night I lit the candles.


Thanks for your visit.
