In the South, Fall and Winter are sometimes the best seasons for sitting on the deck. Yesterday, I decided to...
...add a little wreath to the bird house on the deck table...then, I put a few pine cones in the bird nest, and added a bowl of cut greens and Nandina berries.
I brought out a plaid throw and some pillows, thinking I'd put my feet up for a few minutes, but then...you know how it is...I started taking photos.
I was surprised to see that it got dark really fast, so I grabbed some candles...
...the "blue hour" at 6:30 pm...who knew?
If you look carefully, you can just see the reindeer pillow on the glider. Ahhh...perfect weather for "gliding".
Thank goodness I remembered to take the throw and pillows in the house last night, because this morning, the weather is damp and dreary...perfect for giving the paperwhites a breath of fresh air.
This year, I used the "5% solution" for growing them, and it really worked...no floppy paperwhites.
Here's the LINK I used to figure out the "solution".
Finally, I added a poinsettia, which was a gift from one of our Christmas party guests. I'll enjoy the plants on the deck today, but will bring them in tonight. The bowl of evergreen cuttings, however, will stay out. They won't mind the cooler weather, which is on the way.
I love decorating the deck, especially since I see it from the kitchen windows.
Do you "deck-orate" yours for Christmas?
