After a VERY wet spring, I was able to plant some flowers around the patio. And, luckily, we have had a lot of sun the last few weeks - so they are doing surprising well. I do not have a green thumb but I am learning.
Usually I plant the same types of flowers. This year, I mixed it up a little. I bought a few different kinds and colors. And then I randomly put them in the pots on the patio.
They are really looking beautiful. It's fun to enjoy them when I sit outside. And I can see most of them while looking out the sun room windows.
I love the sort of mix and match flavor of the pots. Different colors and textures together.
I am definitely getting more comfortable in the garden. I've tackled a few larger projects outside too - by planting some bushes and building a flagstone wall:
Here is that little corner from another angle:
And I planted a few boxwoods next to the side door:
Those are great here because the deer won't eat them. I've planted a few bushes over the years that didn't last through winter due to rabbits and deer - so these have become a favorite.
I'm hoping to enjoy a beautiful sunny weekend on my patio - and I know I'll enjoy the beautiful scenery!
