~ patio 2017


More pics of the patio!

As I mentioned in my last post, I have all the boxwoods stored for the winter. It is a happy day when those are delivered each spring! 
Instant green and beauty!

I brought up the pillows, bought a few plants, and voila!

I ended up with ferns instead of ivy topiaries in the pair of pots on either side of the steps... I prefer the topiaries, but I think Vickie Lea thinks I'm cray-cray with all the topiaries :) She suggested ferns...



I still don't have the cushions on the bottom seating arrangement, but we only use that seating area when we entertain... 

Boxwood and ivy!


The absolute best place to take a nap...

If only I had time to take a nap...



Just bought those new scalloped umbrellas from Pottery Barn... 
Love the navy trim!

Happy Summer!

PS I sell those blue and white garden seats in my shop!

Beautiful. Any tips on the care or variety of boxwoods in pots? I have had a couple that didn't make through summer last year. I'm not sure if I didn't have adequate drainage at the bottom or maybe a larger variety not intended for pots.

bessebug ~ I do not have any tips for you! I am so sorry! I totally left it up to my yard guru, Vickie Lea, and just told her I wanted boxwoods in the clay pots I bought.. She has replaced a couple through the years, but for the most part, they get trimmed each year, and are still going strong!
Sorry I'm not much help. XO
