back yard and patio

Thought you would like to see our backyard and patio..we have a lot of work to do to get it the way we want it.. it just takes time. Jack has planted a  very small vegetable garden..tomatoes, onions and burp less cucumbers. I have edged the front with nasturtiums. Not only are they pretty but are great in salads as well as cut flowers

Welcome
 

As you come in the gate to the right is our front door. Across from it is our girl we brought with us from the other house. I planted the two large urns with decorative Kale.  The large spikes in the back ground are perennials, in the spring they produce white flowers.

Picture of the patio with figures brought from the other house..impatience planted along the front and  the side of the brick patio


 The fountain was given to us by our dear friends Bob and Claude Merritt. We have a spotlight we turn on at night that illuminates the ferns and flowers as well as the fountain, When I enter my bedroom that is the first thing I see through the window.Sigh!!!
