WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG!!!!

Even though this blog looks like my old one, Debbie-Dabble, "Debbie-Dabble Blog" is my new Blog that I created on June 23, 2016, after my old one was hacked through my Debbie-Dabble Face Book Page which I have now deleted!!

I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse that was built in the middle 70's, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 36 years before it closed in November of 2018 and have been a nurse for over 40 years, with most of that time being full time!!! I recently had my knee replacement surgery done after putting it off for 6 years... I will be officially retiring very soon....

I DABBLE IN A BIT OF THIS AND THAT!!!!

George Eliot was actually a pen name for a woman named Mary Anne Evans......

Colorful Summer Patio, Part 2, 2019

Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!
I am so happy you decided to stop by!!

Previously, I shared the one side of our Colorful Summer Patio........
 Click HERE if you missed that post......

And I also shared a project that I have been wanting to do for 4-5 years but free time was an issue.....
Click HERE if you missed my post, Lighting the Way to Our Home!!

I left off at our back door in Part 1 of Our Colorful Summer Patio......
Today, I will be showing you the other side of the Patio, Joe's side, and the "Bump Out" area......
We call it Joe's side because this is where he likes to sit.....
As I mentioned in Part 1, the back yard and patio are decorated in a whimsical bright and colorful theme........
Out back yard gets the Sun for most of the day so we use 2 umbrellas to help extend the shade that the awning provides....
I will start this post off with the "Bump Out" section as I call it......
 I wanted to add a table and chair with an umbrella to the patio a few years back so I decided to extend the patio using pavers......
I "Bumped Out" the patio to house the table and chair....
The table and chair fits perfectly between the 2 walkways in the yard.....
This side of the patio is more of a working side.....
A cabinet with garden tools, gloves and other supplies is on this side of the patio along with my Baker's Rack turned into a potting bench....
As I mentioned in Part 1, I treat the outside like the inside of our house and hang things on the wall....
Garden signs that I repainted a long time ago....
The "Born to Garden, Forced to Work" sign was gifted to me many years ago by my sweet neighbor, Elly , who I mention frequently in my posts....
I bought this mirror, which was painted red originally, at a yard sale....
 I love how it reflects the garden....
I just bought the "Another Day in Paradise" sign at Ocean State Job Lot store the other day....
I planted impatiens in this hanging pot....

Joe and I tried to stop a bunch of birds from building a nest in the bars of the awning by putting PVC pipes in the groove so that could not build a nest...
Then I thought that they built a nest in the bird house and would be content with that....
Until I looked up in the corner of the awning.......

Since the birds are flying in and out, I think that may be eggs already in the nest....
So we will leave it there until the babies fly the coup!!
This is where Joe sits....
Next to his chair is an old filing cabinet that I spray painted.....
I store garden tools, gloves and other garden supplies in this filing cabinet.....
 On top of the cabinet......
 A pot planted with impatiens....
On a table next to the cabinet.....

Potted begonias and impatiens......
  Hens and chicks planted in a vintage Kitchen strainer and a gerber daisy planted in a vintage galvanized pail.....

The awning on this side of the patio does not extend to the fence because we left an area open in case, we ever needed to get up on the roof....
The baker's rack potting bench was also my neighbor Elly's......
I spray painted it pink a few years back......
 Potted hens and chicks.....
A Garden Angel....
Joe found this "Born to Garden, Forced to Work" sign in Wegman's.....
Extra potting soil stored in a white enamelware pot....
Watering cans stored on the bottom shelf....

An old potted Christmas Tree stands in the corner but I need to replace the solar lights that were on it since they did not survive the Winter.....
On the other side is a Dwarf Alberta Spruce that we transplanted into a larger pot last year.....
On the edge of this side of the patio is my Gnome Fairy Garden in a beverage tub....
Click HERE if you missed that post....
A pot of wave petunias, that were being eaten by a ground hog, in a yellow milk crate....
I hope you enjoyed seeing what both sides of our Colorful Summer Patio look like this year.....
I will be doing updates on how the flowers on the patio and in the garden are growing.....

So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!
