Birds, Flowers and Our New Deck - New Camera



This was a wonderful summer - very short - almost didn't get here - but it was fabulous while it was here. This is one of my favorite views of our new deck. Now that the weather has become chilly we are not spending time out there - but we enjoyed it almost every night during the summer.

The petunieas were fabulous in the deck railing planters. Some were ruffled . . .




And some were plain - I'd never seen the two kinds together before . . .

While at the bay one day I spotted this seagull on a lamp post . . .

Got a close up of him with my new camera . . .


And a super close up . . .

Isn't he pretty - sitting there and posing for me?



Thanks, seagull!

Oh yes we'll soon be missing the flowers of summer, but I'm working on embracing the cooler weather right now. I love white petunias, ruffled or otherwise, so pretty! ~Lili

Obviously we are at the other end of the season and I have just planted out our petunias. I hope they will look as lovely as yours.

Nice deck, Jo! I was at a Harbor Freight store on Wed with my son and believe it or not they actually have a "deck heater"! Just sayin' you could probably check it out online
