Thank you for your comments on my rock garden! Next up on the tour are my patio and water garden.
I got this idea from a Mary Engelbriet gardening book. I found this box in the garden section at Hobby Lobby. I planted bigonias and ivy, which will hopefully grow and hang down over the sides.
When I sit on my patio love seat this is what I see. My water garden right in front and the herb/fairy garden (which I will show you next!) to the left.
Here is a view from the other side. Grace is sitting on a stool, watching the fish.
This fish is 2 1/2 years old. Not bad for a goldfish!
Two smaller ones. We have 4 total.
Nestled among the Creeping Jenny is a pot of Dusty Miller, Purple Johnny Jump-ups and a red Geranium.
I filled my strawberry planter with a variety of annuals.
I found this pretty shamrock plant which will be perfect for this coming Saturday. :0)
We got some rain this week and it woke up my little violet plant, one of my favorite flowers. It doesn't like the heat so I'm sure to enjoy it while it lasts.
Do you have any spring flowers popping up in your garden?
