    I was very glad to see your comments about your outdoor rug. No one ever mentions what they do with their outdoor area rugs. In Michigan, I bring my small area rug (5 × 7) inside when we are not using the deck. It takes forever to dry out when it gets wet. I, like you, do not want to purchase a new rug every year. I hope to get at least 3 years wear out of this rug using this method. Thanks!

  2. Loved this post today! Great information as I dream of our downsizing home. We will either end up with a covered and screened deck or four season. Our MN weather can get rough in the winter. Glad to know the wicker you chose has endured the elements pretty well.

    1. So glad you found the post helpful. We just love our patio and use it way more than we ever used our backyard… 🙂

    I was wondering what kind of flowers that is in the photo where they are pink light and dark purple?They are on a table in a white pitcher beside a bottle of wine and 2 glasses. Green grapes are beside them. Thank you.

    1. Hi Donna! Thank you for your kind words. The flowers are called ‘stock’. They are very pretty, inexpensive and come in a range of colors. I find they are most impactful in an arrangement of just the one kind of flower but in several similar colors. Hope that helps!

    The white pitcher of pink, purple light and dark of these colors are the prettiest I have ever seen . I have to know what kind they are. They are on a table beside a bottle of wine and 2 glasses and grapes. Any information will be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
