I guess it is the wrong time of the year to be talking about pool floats. If you live up north, your pool is either covered with some ice on the cover or drained; so thinking about next summer is way on the back burner. But, this might be the best time to get some new pool floats and accessories on order. If you get them now, you are ready to go in the spring. Maybe a great new float for your wife! Maybe a couple great new floating toys for your kids! Maybe a pool game! Maybe a floating cooler to keep your beverages cold and at hand! And maybe a new floating tray to keep your stuff close at hand while you float away! This is the time to get these items on order – NOW not in May!
If you live where it’s cold and much of the winter is covered in snow and the temperature sits around 10 – 30 degrees, then you backyard birds might look forward to you getting one of these. What is one of these? It’s a heated bird bath! The little feathered folks can do a little splashing and also a little sipping in the snow. So plug this bath in and let it stay warm all winter long. The birds might appreciate your efforts! Now’s the time to get one on order. During the warm months, just remove the plug in cord and leave the bath in place!
Well, when you get right down to it, there’s all kinds of things that I don’t know – probably a lot more things than those that I do know!! Oh, well! The thing I did not know was that Cal Flame (famous for their propane/natural gas top of the line outdoor grills) also makes a Charcoal Grill. Did you know that? I found it on line the other day, and it was a surprise to me. It looks just like their other grills but it uses charcoal; and you can get a number of bells and whistles with it like a cutting board, griddle, or smoke tray. If you are an old fashioned nothing-grills-like-charcoal buff, then this might just be the grill for you. Take a look!
If you are like many folks, you have fallen in love with bluebirds. You have bluebird houses in the back yard and wait every year for them to nest and have chicks! Well, here is the ultimate bluebird bird house for you!! This birdhouse comes with a built-in camera so you can hear and see all the activity inside your birdhouse!! Cool!! Now’s the time to get one of these on order so you can have it up in the spring and be ready for the time of your life watching these little feathered folks built their nest, lay their eggs, hatch their chicks, feed them, and watch them make their way into the great outdoors. This is a must have for true bluebird followers!!
Why? Because this little lizard is cute! Not only that, this lizard is colorful and classy!! The chameleon is a well known and unusual animal that is found in many areas throughout the world. It is interesting to note that more than half of the 160 chameleon species in the world live on the island of Madagascar off the eastern coast of Africa. These unique creatures will change colors to match the hues of their background environment. Perhaps this ability allows them to blend in invisibly so that they natural prey cannot readily see them. The also have unusual 360-degree arc vision so there is nowhere for their next meal to hide. The chameleon has been introduced into Hawaii, California, and Florida. Some of their distant relatives like the green anole in Florida share their ability to change from green to brown or grey to blend into the items they perch on. This Chameleon statue does not change colors, but it will definitely add an exotic element to your landscape. The bright colors allow it to stand out against any background; so, no matter where you let the lizard roam, you will be able to easily keep track of it.
So it’s not too late to get a patio heater so you can enjoy the outdoors during the chilly weather. A super propane patio heater like the one in the picture will fill the bill. It will keep you warm in mornings, the afternoons, and the evenings when you sit outside and enjoy your backyard!! Endless Summer makes two great propane patio heaters. We are partial to the one that has the wind resistant feature. If you have had a heater without that feature, you know that when the wind blows it takes your heater’s heat with it and you get cold!! Put a stop to that problem with Endless Summer’s wind resistant technology and enjoy the breezy days with the rest of them!!
We found several outdoor dining sets that are really flexible – you can use them with or without a center leaf so you have two separate dining sets – one for less folks and one for more folks. These dining sets come in three different heights – traditional, counter, and bar. So if you’re a big fan of bar height sitting (like I am) than you can get the set in the bar height configuration and order the mating chairs accordingly. If you like the old fashioned traditional table height, it’s yours. And if you’re one of those “in-betweeners” you can get the table and chairs in a counter height style. Take a look at these dining sets and see what you think! We liked all three of the styles and if you like any one of them, you might want to get a set on order.
Even if you have never kicked a soccer ball, you can try your hand at this table soccer game. It’s perfect for your patio or deck; and you might be better at it than you think!! Park and Sun Sports makes a neat outdoor soccer table that your kids will love and you might even like to give it a try – what have you got to lose! Once you get the hang of it, you can have a family tournament. If you get some of the neighbors playing, there’s no telling how big a soccer game blowout you might end up having – how about a block party playoff!! If you have young ones this is a good game to keep them busy after they’ve played outside all day – it’s better than watching TV!!
I had a very active childhood growing up and I enjoyed playing outside with my friends until the sun was going down. Playing outside was one of my favorite things to do growing up. My brother and I would look forward to meeting up with our friends every day after school and playing basketball, riding our skateboards, and playing at the park.
Having fun on a playset was one of my favorite things to do growing up. My friends and I would enjoy learning fun gymnastics moves that you could do on the monkey bars and getting creative with the stories that we made up while on the playset. It was a lot of fun for us to let our imaginations run wild and to stay on the playset as long as we could.
Now that I have my own kids, I love giving them the opportunity to bond and be active with a good outdoor playset. We have one in our backyard and the kids love to spend time on it every single day. I love that they are staying active and having fun with their friends. Kids’ outdoor playsets are a great way for kids to get some fresh air and have tons of fun.
