More Reports from the Yard

My covered back porch is just big enough for a couple of people to hang out. I was also aiming for a bit more privacy and sun control. I found super inexpensive on sale IKEA drapes at over 100 inches and they are perfect! I love how they blow in the breeze and get a diamond pattern on them from the lattice behind. Added the mirror for a bit of shimmer. I found those great jars at our local Ollies for like 3 bucks and put some moss in them which has lived for weeks! A couple of striped cushions and planted potato vines, and you have a pretty little perch. Hubbie set up a table next to the hydrangeas the last couple days to have some friends over. I made Tyler Florence's Calamari salad from this month's House Beautiful. Totally cheated and ordered the calamari from our favorite Italian restaurant in Scranton, but it was very good!
