Welcome to Spring! We have really enjoyed our first full winter in our new home on the Island. I thought living in a rain forest would be dark and gloomy over the winter months but every day was different. Two sunny warm days and then three days of a soft rain... It is so nice to see the bulbs poking through the soil in January & February instead of May & June. Don't get me wrong, we will still love going to Arizona for six months each year but this was enjoyable as well.
We found this painted white iron lamp at a local Antique store and repurposed it with solar lights. We love the look and it does give a soft warm glow onto the deck area. Once we find a nice outdoor dining table and chairs we will be ready for dinner parties.
Below is our view as we come out our back door onto the covered deck. We had the other sunny deck built straight across the front of the property so we could watch the ducks in the pond from all locations when we are sitting out.
Pier One had this wonderful outdoor rattan set last season and we are very happy with it.
My spring bulbs are so cheerful and bright...the winter garden pot is still looking wonderful as well.
Our town has a local auction house and we found this little iron table and wood/iron bench last Fall.
I love repurposing old items... the window turned out better than I had thought
Our family has gifted us with another vintage window so once I get it cleaned up and painted I will show you were we placed it. It is longer so I may use it for a an arbor for some climbing roses
My little garden angel was a birthday gift and the Victorian iron bird bath below was another find at the auction
The Primrose seem to like the new window box and they are a great pop of colour to the space on the shed
One of our sweet little humming birds on the cover deck... so tiny...
Thank you for stopping in today I hope you are enjoying Spring where ever you are...
