I placed a light in the pansy barrel by the side porch. After we turn the lights out on the porch, the garden light prevents a stranger in need from falling on the steps. It also looks beautiful through the window.
The side porch is always in the shade. I love to sit here in the spring when it is cool.
This year I put two colorful (my favorite colors) plastic deck chairs out with a bench. My goal was to change the porch but not spend any money. So I just moved things around. The water feature had been stored in the shed for over five years (something stored in front of it) so it was nice to have it out again. The sound of water bubbling is relaxing to me. Dear husband enjoys it too now that he has stopped looking for a broken water pipe. Sardis just enjoys being on the porch with us. He doesn't mind the frog who guards the water feature.
On the other side of the porch is our park bench. It only cost $20 new about fifteen years ago. Dear husband has painted it and replaced the slats in it. The UPS man always lines up Amazon boxes on this bench.
This post is titled Garden Lights, so let's go to the deck on the back of the house and look at more lights.
When I look out my kitchen window at night, I see lights glowing from this pot. The picture below marks the step down on the deck.
And now to prove that I am a real person and not a robot, here is my deck swing where I sit in the cool evenings! I moved it diagonally to redecorate. The background is real, not staged. (Hence, proving I am a real person. LOL!)
Now would you mind stopping on the swing for a minute ? I need to share some thoughts. I love reading your blogs and looking at the beautiful pictures of your homes. Lately, I have come across some incredibly well written blogs ... and now I seem to have writer's block. In fact, I have been on the computer five hours today with this post! I'm going to stay with it. It won't be Shakespeare, but it will be me. Thank you for visiting today!
