  1. Beautiful patio garden, esp.the morning glory. It appears almost navy on my tablet. An idea for your little pot creatures is to raise them in the container by placing them on a chunk of wood or brick or a rock. It is amazing how fast a garden grows in the rain once the heat kicks in. Enjoy, and thank you for sharing!

  2. Your patio is beautiful beyond words. A wonderful oasis in what is sometimes an ugly world.
    We are just beginning to plant here in Wyoming.

  3. Plants do so well for you, in all your gardens I've seen. I think they must know that you love them dearly and so they flourish.

  4. You're patio is always such a gorgeous range of colours. It looks so peaceful. You really do have a green thumb. 🙂

  5. First… OMG, your morning glory color is a beautiful deep color. As tenacious as they are, how fortunate to have in your cozy gardens! Second, I wouldn't cut those mums either. (Hope you post the full blooms.) They are vigorous!

    My flowers are all in the spring stage here and just had to drop a line to say that I love your gardens! Thank you for sharing the beauty, Brenda. It was a breath of fresh air!

  6. It is exciting to see the colors that bloom from buds. That is as much fun as visiting your blog each day. Today when I popped over it is blue. So very pretty. I love watching you tweek your blog, it gives me ideas. You have probably shared, but how did you get round pictures in your header. Thank you for sharing and your lunch looks yummy!

  7. Lovely !!!!!! You are the blogger I followed since 2010!!!! when I first started to peek at the blogging world. I started my blog in May. Love to read what you post always. Take care.

  8. I love the surprise from some of my forgotten flowers. I'll think everything is too green and then the following day an explosion of colour comes along – beautiful! Your lunch looked delicious, as does your garden! Have a wonderful week xx

  9. Yes I do wonder about the color some flowers will be..this is also true when I buy the mark-down flowers at Lowe's..sometimes they have buds on them but you can't tell what color they will be yet..that is part of the fun..seeing what gorgeous colors you get when they do start to bloom..I just love your galvanized tub gardens..I have been on the look-out for some cheap second hand ones but so far no luck..That is a lunch I would enjoy!..

  10. Good morning, Brenda 🙂

    Your garden looks beautiful! I didn't know that bugs didn't eat herbs as much as flowers. That's good to know 🙂

    You lunch looked taste too!


  11. Lunch looks yummy Brenda! And you are right about the bugs leaving the strong scented herbs alone. We have a boatload of sage in our backyard and no worries about visitors eating any of the flowers around it. I think I may transplant some into the garden. Great post with gorgeous pictures. Thanks you so much for sharing!

    1. I fell in love with herbs about 1990. I was a member of an Herb Society Club. I would love to do that again.

  12. Your garden looks like you've lived there for years and years. So lush and green.
    Your lunch looks especially good today……….I'm having pineapple jello and lots of juice and tea. I'll make up for it tomorrow though.
    I hear the rain has stopped at your house.. We need some because my backyard has cracks in the ground. BIG cracks.
    Have a great week………..I wonder if June will fly by like May did.

  13. Mmmmm – your lunch looks delicious! I, too, wait anxiously to see the color of the blooms! I forget what I planted where and it is always a nice surprise. I have huge day lilies in front of my porch and when they all blossom – it is my favorite and fleeting time of the year. They have buds now, I can't wait until they pop and I can share!
