So each of these pictures were taken either from the deck or the patio.
I've had this guy since my first apartment.
He held onions and garlic on the counter for years.
I dug him out of a garage cupboard and stuck an annual Verbena in him.
The first flowers on a Salvia patens 'Cobalt', that overwintered again.
My Brugmansia has grown a ton in the last couple weeks, and the Honeysuckle is blooming now.
Another annual Verbena.
I resanded the table that The Dad built last year, and sealed it with something different.
The wax just wasn't gonna cut it for outdoors.
I stuck a new-to-me vine in the big planter with all the Begonias that come back solid every year.
Bleeding Heart Vine, or Dicentra scandens.
I'm excited for the first flower.
This guy seems to be happy on his summer vacation outside.
I painted the French doors black recently and LOVE them so much more.
And last, a sweet little Begonia that jumped in my cart on one of many nursery stops.
And that's it for the deck and patio edition.
I'll head out front with my camera next.
A lot of you have asked me to do an update on my sister.
I promise I will.
She's scheduled to go home on Monday, so that's fantastic news.
I'll attempt a detailed post in the next few days.
