I’m still here in Kauai. Trying my best to live frugally and have a great time while I do. I’m going to garage sales every Saturday but I need very little now as I have our home pretty well stocked.
We really enjoy our deck out back that gives us a view of the mountains and the sea, but plants make it even better. I search the garage sales now for containers for our on deck garden. We love having flowers and plants all around. Inside I have water-filled bottles along a shelf by the ceiling with vines cascading down and a varying assortment of ever changing cut flower arrangements.
On the deck we’ve made a nice dish garden with rose flowered impatients and polka-dot plants. Some snake plants, the coconut palm, variegated arrowheads, vinca, deep red lettuce and a tomato plant round out our deck garden now, but Chris wants more flowers.
The deck is also a great place for bird watching. The white cattle egrets and red junglefowl make a strong presence. Red crested cardinals, zebra doves, and the white-rumped shama frequent our deck side trees and delight us daily with cooing and song.
I can’t help but to share my pictures from my favorite time of my day.
