Outdoor living is a year-round topic on Hometalk. Hometalk members are busy planning and maintaining outdoor living spaces from the heat of summer to the cold of winter. Some folks are professionals who post gorgeous pictures of the outdoor living dreamscapes they've built. Other folks are DIYers who are revamping their outdoor living areas, building outdoor furniture, or planning an outdoor living room for the first time. Whether you're a novice or an expert, join a conversation about outdoor living rooms on Hometalk.
I have had these chairs for years. They were old when I got them! I have painted them several times, but the paint just chips right off. This time, I took all of the right steps to make that paint hold on tight!
Last year, I turned a birdbath into a flower planter and filled it with 3 types of sedum. I wasn't sure how it would fare, thru summer or winter. But, during the summer it flourished, and
it fared well over the winter as well. I let the leaves and pinestraw that fell, stay and be a mulch/cover for it during the cold months. And this spring, its quite beautiful, even though one particular type has overtaken the others for now lol. (although the one that grows like a vine I had to trim back b/c it looked quite rough after the winter, even tho it was still living)...there are even pieces that fell to the ground and are growning! :)
After we take our holiday tree down, we set it outside for all the critters that come to visit our yard. When we went to take it down a few days ago, we found a mama bird sitting on her nest. I got my first shot of her today---can't wait until there are some peeping babies!
