I don’t know what’s going on, but every morning I go out to take wide range photos of the patio to show you how it’s laid out before the sun is shining on everything. And most of them for some reason haven’t turned out right.
Not only that, but I’m still, still having problems with downloading them to the right folder. I download as I usually do and I can’t find them. I’m about to drive myself crazy trying to figure this out.
My hope is that when the calendar turns to May, I will have a whole new folder and be able to fix whatever I’ve managed to accidentally click that’s causing all the problems.
At any rate, here are some of photos of my patio garden spaces.
I’m really picky when it comes to photos. I only want the best I can shoot and crop so you can see what I want you to be able to see easily.
I’ve been using Canon cameras for many years. Way back before digital. I’ve never tried any other kind. And I won’t take photos with my phone.
I’m a stubborn old duck. I know I could probably get perfectly good photos with my phone. But it just doesn’t feel right to me. I like the camera in my hand.
I won’t even turn on my phone when I go out because I can’t stand the little pings and dings. I don’t like sudden sounds. They make me feel stiff as a starched shirt.
When I go out, I want peace. As much as I can find with people and their damned phones pinging and dinging.
And I’ve actually found it pleasant to not be out around people hardly at all, though of course my heart breaks due to the reason it is suddenly like this for all of us.
Here’s the Gingko Biloba butterfly tree. Someone asked recently where it was.
It has to have some shade or the sun, I found out the hard way, burns the leaves.
Kendra brought me their chef’s leftovers of salisbury steak last night. The “chef” made a great big salad for me that I hope I’m able to finish off before it goes bad.
I told her I didn’t think I had salad dressing. But never worry, she told me, the chef makes his own.
He’s going back to work, so I’ve frozen what I can to have goodies down the line a bit.
He also made a delightful dish of all kinds of veggies mixed together for me that I can eat on for days or freeze a bit of it for later on.
I hope you’re figuring out what is where in these photos, to get the total layout of the patio and where one container space ends and the next begins. It’s a really good sized patio and I make use of nearly every inch of it.
I don’t think I could get many more containers out there or I’d be falling over them. It’s just about right as it is. I try to make use of both the horizontal as well as the vertical space.
I thoroughly enjoy this space. This is surely a little bit of heaven right outside my French doors and it gives me so much pleasure. I’m ever so grateful to have it. And to share it with you.
