A couple days ago one of my old Adirondack chairs broke. I had been thinking of replacing them, they were cheap, knock-off models that were getting pretty rickety, but I wasn't quite ready yet. I'd been pondering if I wanted more of them or if I would prefer a change all together. Since we sit out there all the time, and I hadn't figured out the answer yet, the fastest solution to our immediate seating problem was to move my table and chairs around from the back patio. Now I'm trying to decide if I like them out front ~ I know I don't like the big void they left on the back patio. Maybe you can help me ~ and check out the garden at the same time??!! Here's a side view ~ what you would see walking up my driveway and turning onto my front walk:
and a view from the street:
Not sure I'm digging it or not? I really think I preferred this look better:
the side view again with the "old" look:
Maybe it's time to break down and get some new Adirondack chairs after all?? I think I miss them already and looking at these photos is helping me make that decision.
Since we're on the front patio, we may as well see the porch again, right?
Maybe not ~ I should have moved that tacky yellow jacket trap before I snapped the picture! I think I may have overdone the containers this year ~ they are everywhere. Too much of a good thing?
Swinging around to face the street, you have to take one more look at the orange 'Cleopatra' foxtail lilies:
They are really beautiful this year. I hope this clump grows and grows over time.
Thanks for letting me review my options "outloud" with you. I sure appreciate your input but I think posting has helped me make up my mind. We'll see if you come to the same conclusions as I am...
