My Bright & Colorful Patio 2014, Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of my Bright and Colorful Patio Reveal.......
If you missed Part 1 of the Patio, Please click HERE
 I already showed you the left side of the Patio and today I will be showing you the right side of the Patio
 ( when standing in the yard looking at the back of the house)
As mentioned in the previous post, I wanted a Whimsical, Bright and Colorful area on the Patio and in the Back Yard......
This side of the Patio is where Joe usually sits......
We left off at the back door last time.......
I always wanted a french door in the house so years ago, I got a storm door that looks like one.
My garden wreath that I made  last year.....
This side is a smaller area than the other side of the Patio.....
I painted that plant stand blue last year......
A new pillow for the chair bought at Lowe's this season.......
The boots that I turned into planters that I bought at a yard sale several weeks ago for $2,00!!
I decorate the walls of the back of our townhouse like I decorate the inside using the "More is More" philospohy!!
I bought the mirror at a yard sale last year for $5.00 and painted it white.......
 It was red originally......
I love the reflection of my little Cottage Garden in the mirror!!
 And I added light from the Dollar Tree to light it up at night!!
 Looking toward my neighbor's.........

Remember I live in a Townhouse.........
I did plant flowers in this hanging pot.

The pot on the other side I did not plant in after the baby birds who had their nest in there flew the coop.

They sometime come back to same nesting place so I will leave the pot on the other side of the patio empty in case they do!!
 The bird house was bought last week at a yard sale for $5.00

Binoculars for  watching the many birds that are in our yard because of my neighbor's bird feeders......
I have minimal storage so my watering cans go under the table when not in use......
You can see that the awning does not go to the end of the Patio on this side.

The reason is so we can put a ladder there should we ever have to get up on the roof without having to go into a neighbor's yard to do so!!!
The lattice attached to the chain link fence provides privacy......
The tree has lights on it and looks pretty lit up at night!!
I bought this file cabinet which was solid brown a few weeks ago at a yard sale for $5.00 and painted it!!
I store all of my garden things in here!!
Okay, I never said I was an artist!!

Looking out into the yard from this side of the patio.....
On this side of the Patio, I have a mini Fairy Garden in a beverage tub that I created last year.....
 I added blue and green crystals from Dollar Tree this year to give the appearance of grass and water.....
 The little fairy figurines were bought at a yard sale last year by one of my co workers who knew i was looking for fairies!!
 I was surprised that the plants survived the harsh winter we had!!
And of course, it is lit up at night by a solar light!!

One of the Birdhouse stand that I built last year.......
 I have been hanging on to this Dwarf Alberta Spruce in this pot for a year now and every time i think it died, it has new sprouts on it!!
 I hope this little sign does not ring true!!!
There are new sprouts on it.....really!!!
 More pots and plant stands.....
And as you can see on the end, more plants to plant!!

So that is the other side of the Patio!!
 In Part 1, I shared this side of the Patio........
And now you saw  the other side of the Patio in Part 2!!
 In Part 3 of my Bright & Colorful Patio Reveal, I will show you the small extension of the patio that I added last year with my little table and chair and my new addition of an umbrella this year.......
  It added more shade to this very Sunny area......
  So I hope you will come back to visit once again when I share the final area of my small but Bright and Colorful Patio!!!
Click HERE for Part 3, the little extension of the Patio with the table, chair and Patio Umbrella!

And soon I will be sharing an update on my Cottage Garden with a few new pieces!!
