My house in North Seattle has a nice deck that spans the back of the house. It's not wide, but quite long. One of my big living room windows looks at one corner, where I have some flower containers and my bird feeders. The containers did not winter over very well, so I decided to empty them and plant some new plants.
I love tall, blooming flowers and I also like fresh herbs. Herbs smell so good in all weather. The taller, tube shaped plants attract the hummingbirds during the summer, and I also have a seed feeder and a suet feeder.
Happy Spring, and Happy house projects!
