Tip to Enjoy Your Deck/Back Yard!

Plant fruit trees, veggies and herbs, this is my little fig tree and you may remember I have a blueberry bush. I have tomatoes at the front, so you can get fresh ingredients from your own yard! I had a lot of fresh herbs but had some greedy slugs about, so I now keep these in pots on the deck!

Hang some wind chimes, I love the sound they make

Get a swing and sit back and relax, I got this for Jasmine as she liked it so much, when she's a little bigger will get a swing set.
Play in the grass!!
Plant pretty plants and flowers that you can see from your deck, ones with fragrance are great 

put out bird feeders so you can enjoy watching the birdies!

Oh and I also have a paddling pool for Jasmine but she didn't have any clothes on the other day so no picture this time!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer, 


Of to the beach on monday for a few days so will announce the winner of the give away Friday/Saturday Next week

    Girlichef I know I love my 0.2 acre yard I have trees at the back but they are not all mine!! thanks first time to this part of NC coast, Rebecca

  12. We had to cut down our huge maple tree (it's interior was rotted) and so we lost the lovely shade we had on our deck. We haven't spent as much time out there but after this, I want to head out and enjoy our outdoor space before summer ends! You've done a wonderful job with your space.

  13. kristen thanks
    tangled noodle sorry about the maple tree thats a shame

  14. I loved the backyard tips. I always look at all the beautiful humming bird feeders and never indulge. Just maybe I'll pick one out and buy it next time. For the garden, not me. ;)

  15. Rebecca, love your backyard. I alway's love having family over for dinner in the backyard. Now that I have chickens, it's so much fun just sitting and relaxing in the backyard while watching my chooks :)
