We have a little alcove in our courtyard. We think we will put an arbor with a seat in the middle of it. After that I don't know what to do! Help! Does anyone have any ideas? It does not get direct sunlight. Coco blends in with the mulch!
What a mess. It was cold, we were overwhelmed and tired and things just got put anywhere! The courtyard is only about 6 ft. wide after the Alcove and does not get a lot of sun. It does get some in different spots at different times of the day. We have a large cement patio and the covered porch at the end. I am thinking put the raised beds on legs on the cement or near the edge of patio on the mulch and the other side put plants or pots, etc. I think some kind of pavers to make a path down the middle towards the potting bench. Hanging baskets from the porch. Can you picture all that?! LOL What suggestions do you have?????
The covered porch with the potting table. The potting table will probably stay there. I will put a couple pots of veggies on the potting table so Coco does not eat them.
Another part of the patio with the sliding glass doors. Too much cement and not enough dirt but I had no choice in the matter! The Alcove is across from the sliding glass doors.
Hmmmm! What do you think this is? It is part of my new cold frame and will be 2 ft. wide and 8 ft. long and on legs so that I don't have to bend over. What luxury!
Here is the rest of that cold frame!
My carpenter went back home to MD! I would keep him here busy for a long time if I had my way! LOL So we ordered this metal spice rack to go on the end of the bar area. I know my spice bottles do not match but I am okay with that for now!
These raspberries were potted up from our previous yard and stored in Mike's garden while we were living in that tiny apartment. They are still living and he brought them over yesterday. I think I will try planting them in the ground and pray they do well.
This is the flannel lap quilt that I started some time ago. Pinned the back and batting to it the other day so it can be quilted. Maybe soon I will get back to normal, whatever that is!! Okay! I am waiting for lots of ideas from everyone that reads this on how to make my courtyard functional and beautiful! Thanks for your help!
