We live in the mountains and we have a white picket fence around our back porch door to keep animals off, our dogs, coyotes (seriously), rabbits (from eating my flowers), chickens (when a stray one gets loose).
We just had our deck finished, I haven't decorated it yet, not sure what to do. What a beautiful day it is here though. I would love to have potted palms around the deck but because we get low temps at night they wouldn't handle the cold or frost. We have seating all around our deck because our family gatherings that are usually at our house bring 50-60 relatives. We love it but that is alot of seating for everyone. This takes care of that as long as the weather is nice. The poppies are in full bloom, the skies are blue, and it is going to be hot!
