We spend a lot of our time on the deck in the backyard. From April through November to be exact. As soon as the last of the snow melts in Spring, right up to the first snowfall of Winter we are using that area of our home. It’s our outdoor room. If the weather permits and it’s not to cold we are usually sitting out there eating, talking and relaxing. One Thanksgiving it was warm enough to have dinner out there, but we decided to eat in the dining room to keep the day special. We only use the dining room a few times of the year and it’s formal atmosphere is a nice change.
The swing is the most popular piece of furniture on the deck. Who can’t resist a porch swing? I have it dressed with these lovely fall pillows. Their size is perfect for it. A few cozy throws are draped on the side of the swing just incase the temperature starts to drop.
In front of the swing is this old rusty iron bench I’ve had for a long time. I like to use it as a plant stand. I created a fall display on it with mostly winter cabbage. I nestled in some designer style pumpkins and a lantern to make it look full and pretty.
The trees in the backyard are changing beautifully! Just as I write this today there are more reds and orange in the back ground that have popped up. How fast the leaves change their colors. It seems that one day they’re green and the next they’re yellow, orange, red or purple. It’s just sad the fall foliage don’t last longer.
I hope you enjoyed my “Falling Around in the Backyard” post!
