|Kabrina on the upper deck|
When Kabrina finally dared to go out on the upper deck she relaxed, realizing she loved to be outside. Plus, she can be outside without my having to worry about her.
Since then she likes to hang out with us, watch birds, roll around, supervise me, and eat cucumber leaves.
|Blue Morning Glory|
Earlier, I mentioned that my showiest flowers were simple old-fashioned flowers like these morning glories. While I started these from seed, the others (nasturtium and sweet pea) I bought as starts to use in my window box planters.
The upper deck has two 1/2 walls that could use a trellis or an espalliered plant. One gets sun and the other shade so I have some options. The wall shown above separates us from our neighbors' deck. I'm considering building a taller screen that is decorative, but useful as a planter. I've seen some creative ideas online, but that's still one for the drawing board.
