Found some cute pillows for the chairs on our deck at of all places….Bed, Bath, and Beyond. And I actually had my 20% off coupon with me when I found them. The pillows were made by Solarium Fabrics and I thought they might help brighten things up out there.
Oakley likes them.
We found some new chairs a couple of weeks ago. I like them very much but I do miss my old ones. The old chairs were heavier and had really comfortable cushions. But they were looking bad! They were at least 7 or 8 years old and it was time to freshen up. I think I mentioned that the birds were pulling the stuffing out of them to make their nests because they had started to fray and come apart. We donated the chair frames which were still in great condition to the Kidney Foundation and they sent a truck and picked them up last week. We are still shopping for a new table. But as I said before this one is still fine till we find something we like. It’s getting harder and harder to find round tables anymore. We might get one more year out of the market umbrella.
And here is a shot of this years Pride and Joy. My garden. I like how my husband lets me call it “My Garden” when he does most of the tilling and hoeing. :)
Those are red skinned potatoes in the back. spinach, lettuce, Swiss chard, a rogue yellow squash that popped up on it’s own, and at the far end are the radishes, basil, and a couple of tomatoes.
I’ll be planting more tomatoes soon. Cucumbers and beans too. I’ll have to wait till the lettuce and spinach are done. They can’t take the heat in the summers here so when they start to bolt, I’ll take them out and plant some peppers, beans and cukes. I love looking out at the garden this time of year. Later in the summer it starts to look like a jungle but right now it’s a pleasure to look at.
