  1. I enjoyed your patio blooms! Here I had two daffodils that survived the cold and then two days later we went to 85 degrees and they succumbed to the heat

  2. Beautiful! I love the close-ups, but I was wondering if you would show some wide angle shots of the patio so I could get a better idea of where you place things in relationship to each other. I am trying to plan a container garden on my deck, which I’ve not done in an extensive way before. I am cutting down on flower beds in my yard as it’s getting too hard to take care of them all. I want to have a really showy container garden this year instead. Like you have!

  3. I love your garden! And i love to go outside each morning and see how my plants are doing. I planted lettuce this year and it is doing so well I think in another 2 weeks I will be eating it.

    I hope your pup is feeling better.

    Thanks Brenda for replying to my comment and for letting us know what you think of the books you read. I can’t wait to start the Decker series. Your patio garden is lovely and the photos look as if you could reach out and touch the plants. sue

    1. I just bought a plug in for my book reviews that will make them more detailed. I’m currently trying to figure out how to use it!

  5. I bet the lemon balm is very sweet to smell. Your garden is really coming to life. Before long you will have juicy tomatoes to enjoy.
    Have a great rest of the week.

    1. The patio smells of lemon and alyssum.

  6. Wow, look at all those flowers!!!! We have a lovely warm day today with abundant sunshine…..I put a load of wash on the line before I went to work, and I plan on cooking on the grill this evening after a cocktail on the swing – happy dance! Perhaps a few of my daffodils might be blooming by the time I get home as well!! 🙂

    1. Sounds good! Wish I had a seat at your table.

    1. I always have lemon balm, mint, pineapple sage and lemon verbena.

  7. I love your photography and your garden progress pictures, especially since growing things here in the Northeast are still mostly asleep. Gardening and photography are two of my favorite things too.

    1. We have a lot in common then!

    Wow! Your patio garden has really taken off; the photos are just beautiful. I need to plant a few more herbs and I really like the lemon balm — not sure why I have not planted any here in St Augustine. But that is easily remedied with a trip to the garden center. And I do love visiting the garden center — both centers where I enjoy shopping have lots of cats that live there and you never know when you will encounter them. Sometimes they are lounging in the sun on the garden paths or dozing in the shady areas in the plant areas. Once in a while they are laying across the counter at checkout. They are always friendly (well as friendly as cats can be) and love to be stroked. Going to the garden center for me is a lot like going to a museum — I can spend an entire morning just walking through the different sections and looking at the new selections.

    Love the Decker series and David Baldacci.

    1. Oh I do too. Decker is so lovable even though he tries not to be.
