I live in Portland and rent a little duplex with a small yard. Embarrassingly I have lived here for over 10 years and up until last spring I never really did anything with it. It’s taken over a year to get it to where it is today. I learned a lot and killed a lot of different plant varieties. It’s not perfect - I have lots of weeds - but I keep up on it and get lots of birds, butterflies and squirrels.
I have a couple photos of my patio from last year, but I was mostly focused on the metal table and chairs I got for free from a friend.
I bought some bright teal spray paint and some inexpensive cushions (but good!) from Amazon.
I have been making planters with bricks and bits of wood that were laying around in my yard.
The bird bath I inherited with the duplex and I started the ivy around in several years ago. The ivy can go crazy so I’m constantly cutting it back.
I have to admit it has been stormy off and on today so I had to time my photos accordingly. We have had some awesome weather lately so it’s been nice to have a cheerful space to shelter in place. I also have my boyfriend’s dog at home with me today which has been lovely.
