Redecorating Our Garden Gate
|April 25, 2012||Posted by Helen under Home Decor & Travel|
One day last week, again I found myself stopping at Ross Dress For Less to check out their decorations for home and outdoor areas. There were lots of sizes of lanterns, watering cans, etc. And suddenly out of the corner of my eye, there was what had to go home with me. Remembering, that it was almost time to refresh the gate decorations for our summer fun in the back yard…behind that gate..I knew this gorgeous butterfly would be perfect. Not just perfect looks, but perfect price and quality were in the deal.
I know if anyone had ever said, that I would buy and decorate a gate with a red, white, and blue butterfly…well you know! Yes, you know they would have been just crazy! Bob had been at a golf shop while my shopping took place. When we arrived home, I was very interested in his reaction to the newest thing for him to hang. Actually, it was super easy and could easily have been put in place by me.
Words cannot express how delighted Bob and I were to see this beautiful piece with our patriotic colors hanging on that gate. Now, we’re hoping to find another one just like it to hang on the inside of the fence. What do you think of it? It will likely be there into July. Notice the stars on the top of the wings. They are cutouts in just the right spots to hang the metal piece, and using the screws that previously held the container used earlier for a copycat of the Southern Living magazines decoration of a fence with an old brass mailbox on it.
Again, remember this was a great bargain find. Just as the container resembling the mailbox was!
In other words, I’m tickled red, white, and blue!
Please, don’t forget that all photos are clickable. You will likely need to click twice to get the largest size to show. Here’s an off center photo, that shows how green our woods have become in the past week or so! Gotta love this season.
We’re now ready to get the deck boxes and all the large flower pots planted. The bare containers look so pitiful. Not long now until they will be overflowing with ferns and impatiens. The weigelas are still blooming and have grown too tall. Click: http://www.helensdecor.com/beyond-the-garden-gate-weigelas/

Notice the great ball topiary, that is like the ones we saw in Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic. It still looks like new and oh so real!
