Garden Decoration!


I'm not clear on what you want? I thought you were looking
at ways to decorate your patio and yard?

Whatever you have -- whether it be patio or deck, your focus
should be on making it comfortable and cozy. A place where
you look forward to coming home to at night, and having a
'patio drink.' If you want a suggestion on where to start,
start with a couple of bird feeders. It so fun to watch the birds
all year long.

Maybe if you post some pic's of your patio and the surrounding
area of your patio, we can give you some ideas on how to turn it into
your very own outdoor retreat.

It's time to get a good idea of what you have---and what you want in the end---

A comfy patio is done in stages and evolves with time----

My dads first pond was an old bath tub----then a horse trough join the water garden---then a dug pond---then a re-do and a big pond and bog garden---and a bridge---

Think big----Start small-----

Yes, post pics of your backyard and patio and perhaps we can give you
some ideas where to start.
It's a good idea to start with the patio area.
If you want a bird feeder, get one and put it up in
a pole by the corner of your patio. Wrap the pole with either grape
vine wreath, or twisted tree branches that you can wire on.
This provides a landing area for the birds to land on before entering
the feeder.
You can dig out a decorative bed around the feeder and plant it with
perennials, and lots of big rocks. We love rocks and often go on rock
hunts. Rocks are beautiful, we have favorites and those rocks are named.
We have a rock by our waterfall that looks like an alligator and a rock
that looks like a frog, hence we named it 'the frog rock'

This is the frog rock, we picked it up on a construction
site. It's a beautiful golden color...see the hind leg?

Well I've taken some pics too, soon I'll upload them. Well this covering the pole idea seems interesting to me. I must think about it. Well as soon as I get free with some of my personal works. I'll get a bird feeder right away.
