This is what I started with on Monday. These little things RAIN out of the trees so I can sweep and blow the decks every 10 mins. AAUUGGHH!!! But I was determined to get the deck set up and start cleaning up the yard and pond so we can plant flowers to enjoy all summer! I love being outside and playing in the dirt!!!!I did get all 9 window boxes planted. Joe made me new ones last year cause the old ones were falling apart. Then we stained them black and I LOVE them. It is such a pretty contrast against the color of the decks. Ther are 5 window boxes on theis deck and 2 on the breakfast room deck and 2 on the deck off our room.
