I love my deck in winter almost as much as I love it in summer. 
 I'll bring my coffee out here some mornings and listen to the sounds.   

 I would like to have a little table to do pottings and rootings on.  
Now I just seem to always use the steps - kinda hard on the back. Our deck is old and is really starting to show it's age.  Some of the boards are looking very worn.  I'd like to say it adds character, but really I think it just looks like it needs to be replaced.  Not gonna happen any time in the near future, that's for sure!

  Are you starting to think of spring?  When I see the daffs emerging I get really excited.  Of course, it's still a long ways off, but it gets me going.  I have a few packs of seeds that need to be spread around.  Seeds that like to freeze then thaw a couple of times.  Larkspur and poppy in particular.

I hope you're having a nice evening, I'm enjoying the drizzly rain and some alone time, which I almost never get.   I had such big plans for my first evening alone, but all I've done is sit here and enjoy the solitude.  I guess that's okay, too.


  1. Enjoy the time alone! Sometimes, just being alone is a treat. I like your winter deck. Looks very green and colorful, even in the middle of winter!

  2. Your little Winter pots are so inviting. I really need to do something on my deck other than just the boxwoods and one nandina which stay in pots all the time. The moss pots are really nice.
