Inhomedecorandmore, I adore your vintage patio set, and the colorful cushions, too! SCORE!
They were all the rage when I was a kid. My mom even used her set ( modular love seat, 2 chairs, glass coffee & end tables, and glass dining set) in the family room of one of her houses in 1963. I have no idea when she bought them.. 50's maybe?
Guess what? She still has that set on her covered patio. It's been re painted and new cushions have been professionally made a number of times over the years. I really like how they used to make em with that lip that the big chunky cushions fit into. Wrought iron just can't be beat for longevity . I have tried to talk her out of it a number of times, but she just gives me the " you'll have to wait til I die " line:(
My " auntie " ( mom's neighbor) still has her set too.
Those sets are STILL the MOST COMFORTABLE, aren't they?

The idea of a steel structure to hold the drapes around our deck could be done using the concept in this picture.

Ahhhh, I don't think I've ever enjoyed spring weather more. We're having a warm and dry April in the Seattle area after the wettest March on record. I went out and moved some landscape plants and put in some veggies. Our black dog lay in the sun.

I really don't care for mulch at all. We put beds all the way around a previous house & put down black plastic then mulch on top. Grass seeds made their way into the mulch & spread like the plague. When I would try to pull one piece of grass out a huge chunk of mulch would come with it because the roots were so extensive. I vowed to never mulch again. (I know, everyone is collectively gasping at the black plastic part. That was several years ago & at the time I knew nothing about mulching.)

We have bought a house & have been remodeling the inside for months, but I am dying to get out in the yard. Because of the way the land lays, the direction of the sun & several large trees, our front & back yards are shaded most of the time. The back yard is fenced in & our dog will be there. I plan to put in a lot of ferns & other native plants there & of course dig up a nice space so the dog can lay his belly on the cool dirt. If I do that, he tends to stay off of the flowers. There is a 5-foot wide bed across the front between the sidewalk and house. It has landscaping fabric, remnants of mulch & 4 Japanese yews. All of that will be gone soon. I also dislike yews very much. After I replant the bed, I am going to fill in with river rock because there are several neighborhood cats who seem to love hanging out in my yard. I really don't want to encourage them to use my flower beds as a litter box.

Anyone have suggestions of a nice, short shrub to put in front of the house? I live in Kentucky. I was thinking of using holly.

I love the idea of sandboxes, but if you have cats wandering free around your neighbourhood you probably want one you can cover up, or you've just created one giant litter box!
